Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey is good enough to play for the best teams in Europe, Diego Simeone has said.
Simeone recently revealed that the Ghanian understands his position perfectly and this makes him one of the best DMs in the world.
According to him, Partey is amazing when it comes to defending, attack, shooting, scoring, providing assists and playing passes between the lines.
He, however, added that Thomas needs to work on his consistency to be ahead of his pairs in his position.
His words, “Thomas is the one who best understands this position and the transition from defence to attack, shooting, scoring, providing assists and playing passes between the lines,”
“When he’s at his best level consistently, he’s so good that all the best teams in Europe are looking at him.”
On Felix, “[Joao Felix] had started these recent training sessions very well, but then he had to sit out due to a knee problem,” Simeone said. “Now he is working with the same enthusiasm. We will assess how he is, we will do a couple of tests, and based on this, we will decide what is best for tomorrow [against Osasuna].
“He has to do what he has done in other games, against Villarreal, Liverpool.
“He had a great pre-season, a very good start, then he had an injury. It was difficult for him to return because of the rhythm and the association with his new team-mates. Then he started to be the player from the beginning.
“He is a young boy. It is normal that this happens to him during the season, but we have the idea that he is very important from here to the end.”
