Arsenal star booted from international camp for ill-discipline

Arsenal’s Thomas Partey has supposedly been kicked out of Ghana’s international camp ahead of fixtures against both Morocco and the Ivory Coast.

The midfielder has enjoyed a mixed campaign in North London, with mixed form interrupted by various injury absences, but is expected to remain a key Arsenal player moving forwards.

The same might not be said for his country however, with his coach Akonnor claimed to have kicked him out of their squad after he turned up late to the camp.

Ghanasoccernet and Ghanaian News outlet Yen claim that Partey only turned up to join up with the squad yesterday, just two days before his side will take on Morocco in a friendly match, a decision which hasn’t been accepted.

The deputy captain could well find his place in the hierarchy under threat after his actions, although we appear to have heard the news early, as not many sources are reporting on the subject at present.

GhanaSoccerNet previously claimed that the Arsenal star was reluctant to join up with his squad ahead of their upcoming internationals, a claim that appears to have been proven true by the latest reports, although official confirmation on the subject is yet to be found.

If the reports are true, should Partey be stripped of his role as vice-captain?

    Less than a year with the senior Arsenal men’s team, and there is a change in the attitude! Hence I say, before we hire new talent, get rid of all existing senior players – even for peanuts or a handful of beans. This speaks of the unseen, unheard and undocumented challenges Mikel has to face each day at AFC. Rotten attitudes! On paper every fan says we have a top 4 squad and Mikel needs to go, in reality the attitude is worse than that of teams battling relegation. I do not have to repeat which players need to moved out in every post, get young lads and some good senipor talent and let us start fresh. With the senior players around on mega wages qwe are at our worst low, so no one will miss them or remember them (except their fan boys who want to prove a point to Mikel who has done an outstanding job by flusing away bad beheavior)

    How many times has he reported late for training at Arsenal. Some of us has started relating the complaint to I’ll discipline at Arsenal. We should find out what actually happened before skating the player or Arsenal coach.

    Good. Let’s hope. He retires international and focus on arsenal.
    Seeing auba sleeping on floor, getting maleria on international. The prospect of losing players to Olympics and African national is not good for arsenal.
    Anyway we don’t know the background why he joined left.

    Coach Charles Akunno is probably still bitter with him after he advice him to stay at Atletico Madrid and snub Arsenal signing. That can only explain the secret bad blood between them.
    The guy should not be hanged, give him his rightly spot.

    Best to fact check the story before saying Partey was “booted” out of the squad. Some reports saying he wasn’t and asked to withdraw and his request was amicably granted. @Patrick, look before you leap!

      👍

  9. Tettey says:

    Tariq Fosu was sacked not Thomas Partey

  10. Sanjay says:

    Stop this non sense “jump through trigger” approach without verifying facts, go and read the news out from the official statement from Ghana, he was granted leave on request !!
