Arsenal legend Ian Wright has urged Thomas Partey to continue scoring goals for the club following the Ghanaian midfielder scored his first goal for the club on Friday, October 22, in a match against Aston Villa in the Premier League.
The former Atlético Madrid player has not scored in his 39 games, but he was able to break his duck.
Partey was thrilled to score his first goal with the club, and he responded to through an interview.
“All the team was frustrated, and we wanted a win that was the mentality we brought to this game today, and we were able to get our result.
I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time. I think it was the right moment to have it, and I’m very happy.
The team performed very good. We have to do this every weekend and every game and with this, we can achieve beautiful things.
They deserve it. They have been supporting us when we have been down and when things have gone bad. This win is for them and I hope they enjoy it,” Partey said via The Mirror.
The problem is that Ian Wright demands more from the Ghana International and other midfielders to be able to score goals for the team. Wright would like players such as Partey, Emile Smith Rowe, and Bukayo Saka to score more often.
“He [Partey]’s somebody that he’s been shooting from some crazy places, so he was desperate to get his goal. I’m quite pleased that he finally got it,’ Wright told Premier League Productions.
I would like to see him getting more goals because Arsenal are going to need more goals from the midfield.
We’re seeing with Emile Smith Rowe, we’re seeing with Saka, there is going to need to be more goals than just the dependency on [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang.”
