Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta has talked about Arsenal and Black Stars midfielder Thomas Partey’s mood in the aftermath of Ghana’s exit from the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Arteta described the former Atletico Madrid man’s emotional state as that of disappointment in connection to how this year’s World Cup turned out for Partey.
Ghana’s Black Stars crashed out the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after losing 2-3 to Portugal and 0-2 to Uruguay but managing to beat South Korea 3-2 in Group H.
“He[Thomas Partey]played a lot [at the World Cup]and obviously he was disappointed at the way that he had to leave, but it happens to every nation when they go out, and it takes a few days to reset and start to focus on the team” Arteta said in an interview ahead of the team’s return to league action on Monday, December 26.
Partey played out the entirety of the duration in all three Black Stars games in Qatar and played 45 minutes in Arsenal’s 2-1 win over AC Milan in a friendly game.
