Gilberto comes out in defense of Thomas Partey

The first season of Thomas Partey on the Premier league He is not being like the ex-footballer of the Atlético de Madrid
Was expected. Let us remember that the Ghanaian left Arsenal, upon payment of the termination clause, on the last day of the summer market.

And it has gone from being in a competition in Champions and who fights for the title of The league in Spain, to one who is in Europa League and that is in the middle of the table in the Premier, which very possibly will be left out of European competitions next year.

If we add to that that he has had several injuries that have left him out of a good number of games, when at Atlético he was injured only once in five seasons, they will make a more or less complete composition of what is happening.

And of course, being a player that cost no less than 50 million euros, the spotlight is on him. Especially considering that it charges the same as Aubameyang
, the star of the ‘gunners’ and that he is one of the highest paid footballers in the Premier.

Hence, his performance is in question in this first campaign. At the moment he has 21 games, a total of 1,279 minutes in which he has not scored a single goal, just two assists.

If recently it was a legend of the Premier like Rio Ferdinand who put the Ghanaian campaign in question, now it is another like Gilberto Silvwho has come out to defend him. “He is a good player. He is the type of player that the ArsenalI’ve spoken a couple of times about it. The club has good players in that position, but not to sit down and hit the Arsenal the stability it has. Watch the game against the SpursIt was great to see how he handled his game, how he handled that position, helping his teammates, “he explained.

“Do you know what is very important about this particular position? This is a very unique position because you don’t always get the credit you deserve. Okay, okay, because you have to understand that. Party made the others much better, “he continued to add,” It makes Xhaka look better in the game, it made the defenders look much better and comfortable when the ball was against them. I think the way he manages the games, the way he positions himself, is very important for him. Arsenal. In my opinion, he is the type of player that he Arsenal it has needed for quite some time ”.
