Partey to miss next few matches

by Koolkola

Summer signing, Thomas Partey missed about one month of football due to injury. He made his return in the North London Derby only to have a setback before halftime.

The decision to rush him back was a risky one that backfired as he will now spend some time back on the sideline.

The midfielder had a scan on Monday and Arteta has confirmed that he’ll miss a few games.

Arteta defended the decision to play him on Sunday while announcing his injury set back.

“He got injured in the same area, not exactly the same spot but the same area as before. He will miss the next few matches,” said Arteta on Wednesday.


“He did incredibly well and he was very confident. We tested him three times and he had zero symptoms, but in football you have a lot of unpredictable actions.


“He went into the floor, his knee got stuck, afterwards he stretched and got up. Immediately he put a lot of stress in a similar area and it happened. Afterwards people will say it was a bit early but I don’t think it was because he was completely fine to play.”

Partey also commented on his injury, posting encouraging on Instagram:

“Being part of the Arsenal family is something incredible for me, since the day I arrived I have felt so supported. The coach had a great influence in my decision to join this team and even though we had some bad results I know we are building something good together. I have had the bad luck to suffer an injury but I hope I can play again soon and fight for this team.”

We wish the Thomas Partey quick recovery.
