Thomas Partey is the type of player Arsenal have needed for a very long time, Gilberto Silva has said. He recently revealed that the £45 million ($62m) star actually makes Granit Xhaka and co look better in the team.
According to him, Partey is a very good player, and he gives Arsenal the kind of stability the club has been crying out for in a while.
Silva added that the Ghanaian player has learned the art of positioning himself amazingly on the pitch, and he manages the game excellently.
His words, “I guess so. In my opinion, I agree with you.”
“He’s a good player. He’s the type of player Arsenal were missing, I’ve spoken a couple of times about it.”
“They have good players in the [central midfield] position but not to sit and give Arsenal the stability they have.”
“Look at the game [against Spurs] it was great to see how he managed his game, how he managed that position, helping [team-mates].”
“You know what is very important about this particular position? This is a very particular position because not every time you get the credit you deserve.”
“That’s okay, it’s fine, because you have to understand that. But this guy, when he understands the position like Partey, look at his game. He made the others a lot better.”
“He makes Xhaka look better in the game, he made the defenders look a lot better and comfortable when the ball was against them.”
“I think the way he manages games, the way he positions himself, is very important for Arsenal. He is the kind of player Arsenal have needed for quite a long time in my opinion.”
