Atletico Madrid’s Argentine trainer Diego Pablo Simeone has heaped kind words on Ghanaian import Thomas Partey after another world class performance in the UEFA Champions League.
The Ghanaian import defied burglar attack at his Madrid based residence with a priceless goal for the Rojiblancos in their 2-0 win at CSKA Moscow.
A stunning performance in the Madrid derby set the world roaring about the buzzing super star from Ghana with his head coach joining the chorus.
Speaking after their crucial win on the road, Diego Simeone described Partey as an unlucky player blacklisted by the global media.
“I could say so many things [about Thomas], but with some of them I have to shut up.”
“I’m very happy with Thomas.”
If he had come from an English or German team, he would be [lauded] but he’s from the academy and he’s just Thomas.”
“He has been working for many years, non-stop”, Simeone lamented.
Thomas Partey has enjoyed a remarkable growth since arrival in Spain in the summer of 2011 and has been linked with a sensational switch to the Santiago Bernabeau or the Theater of Dreams in Manchester.
