Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has admitted to The Sun that he is massively shocked Thomas Partey has played so little football for Arsenal this season.
The 27-year-old Partey has only managed five Premier League appearances for the Gunners so far. The midfielder joined Arsenal from Atletico Madrid for £45 million in October but a series of injuries have severely limited his impact thus far.
Gunners skipper is relishing the big Partey’s eventual return, claiming that Partey makes the players around him perform better.
He said: “It’s incredible that we are in January and Thomas has played so few games for us so we haven’t really seen the impact that he can have on our team.
“Obviously we’ve missed him because his presence brings something different to the side. It’s just not about his talent or his physicality, it’s who he is a person. He makes the players around him better and that’s a big quality.”
