"That Arsenal signed Thomas was the most important thing in my life"

The footballer's father spoke of the last day of the market: "We were hoping that a bigger team would come for him. Thomas called us and said that we should continue to pray a lot."


A week has passed since Thomas Partey officially left Atlético de Madrid to embark on a new professional adventure at Arsenal. However, for their closest circle it has been great news that continues to excite them to this day. In an interview in Joy Sports, one of the most important communication media in Ghana, the footballer's father described the signing of his son by the 'gunners' as the "most important news of his life." In addition, it explains how they lived 'Deadline Day', pending throughout the day for the operation to occur, praying that it would happen.

The most important news of his life: "Actually, that's right. This has been the biggest thing. I dreamed of the path for Thomas to train and dominate the game. I know there are more important things still ahead and this has just begun." .

How they received the news: "Thomas called us. That morning we were praying and a message came to us. He asked me where his mother was and I replied that she was nearby. He asked us if we were praying well and I said yes. We had to keep praying, praying a lot. We told her we would. So, I told my wife that something good was going to happen. "

Doubts: "I wanted to be sure, but I felt good inside because we had given everything to God. My wife asked me if we were safe and I answered that she would surely move."

At the last minute: "We weren't really bothered by anything because we expected a bigger team to come for Thomas. We knew of other teams that were interested, like Juventus or Chelsea. So we knew God was with us. When they announced it, we started dancing ".
