I wish he was a Man Utd player – Roy Keane on Partey

Former Manchester United player and club legend Roy Keane has expressed the wish that Thomas Partey was a Manchester United player. 

The former Irish captain spoke highly about the Ghanaian after his class performance for Arsenal against Manchester United on Sunday.

Speaking on Partey’s performance Roy Keane said: “The more I watch him, the more I wish he was in Manchester United’s midfield.”

He added: “I think this kid has got a chance of matching what Patrick Viera did at Arsenal.”

Thomas Partey played his second game against a ‘Big Six’ opponent in the English Premier League on Sunday, having made his debut as a substitute against Manchester City.

In a game that gave Arsenal a slender one goal victory, the Ghanaian international stole the headlines.

A stacked stat sheet from an excellent midfield display saw football pundits and followers speak highly of the former Atletico Madrid man.

Partey completed a total of 79 touches, 3 successful dribbles, and had a passing accuracy of 93% while winning 71% of his duels.

He moved to Arsenal from Spain for £45 million in October and has played in three games for the club so far.
