“I think the injuries are part of the adaptation” Partey responds to critics of his fitness record

Thomas Partey’s first season at Arsenal has been disrupted by constant injuries with the Gunners unable to rely on their top summer buy for a long time.

The midfielder remains one of the club’s best players, but no team can enjoy a talent if he doesn’t play regularly.

His injury record has been criticized by fans and pundits alike recently, but he has responded to them.

The Ghanaian was one of Europe’s best midfielders when he was on the books of Atletico Madrid.

This is one reason why Arsenal made a move for him and the club is now waiting for him to start repaying them consistently.

Partey admits that he has not been fit enough, but he says it has been down to the change of scenery and it is part of his adaptation to a new team.

‘Yes, it was a difficult moment to get used to how the team play and I think the injuries are part of the adaptation and now I feel good,’ Partey said via Mail Sport.

‘I’m doing all the necessary ways to be able to be more fit and to be be able to play more games.’ 

He is now fit and part of the Arsenal squad that will face Olympiacos in the Europa League this week. He owes the club’s fans a big performance.

    Just another reason why we should turn over a new leaf and get our business done early in the window…for far too long we’ve conducted business in the 11th hour, which is problematic at the best of times

      TRVL, should have bought Thomas Partey earlier in the window.

  2. Val says:

    Yes i totally agree that we should get our business done earlier than we do.
    The trouble there is that our transfer team dont have much to work with right now and have had to sell before we buy, covid has only made this worse.

    Also with injuries this season, and this is across the globe not just at Arsenal, there are so many more muscular injuries than ever before due to the amount of game played in the short space of time.

    Hopefully the world gets back to some kind of normality soon
