Arsenal’s Thomas Partey will not play any part in Ghana’s next friendly game against Nicaragua on Tuesday, but will return to London next week.
The Ghanian is a critical part of Arsenal’s team, and recent reports of a knock that excluded him from Ghana’s game against Brazil on Friday was a cause of concern for Arteta and the Arsenal board.
The midfielder had been injured for Arsenal and just returned to the team against Brentford, a game where he dominated the midfield.
Partey decided to return to London after talks between Arsenal and Ghana. It was decided that Thomas Partey would return to London instead of staying with Ghana for the rest of the international break.
Arsenal felt it was better to bring Partey back to London since he wasn’t going to play the Nicaragua game for Ghana.
