Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey has rated himself as four out of ten at Arsenal and has promised to match his performance for the club.
The player, who was 28 when he joined Arsenal the Gunners from Atlético Madrid last summer 2020, has been inconsistent, which has left Arsenal supporters worried.
Partey has shown that his ability to be the piece that holds the Arsenal team and at other times, he’s completely absent.
The former Rojiblanco player also has struggled with his fitness, which made him to miss the first three games of the season.
“I give myself four [out of 10], because there are moments I can really hurt the other team, but there are also moments where I allow myself to lose focus and that’s when everything goes down,” he told Sky Sports.
“This is when you realize that you have to get better.”
Thomas Partey was one of the players who were criticized during the loss to Manchester United last Thursday, December 2, and the vice Black Stars captain accepted responsibility, insisting that he can do better.
“From the start [of the Manchester United game] I had a couple of moments where I gave two balls away and someone watching on TV from home or in the stadium, it is normal that they see this,” Partey continued.
“At the end, I have to be happy with some moments, I have to learn from the bad parts and try to do better. I think they demanded more, and personally I know I can give more. I have to keep working and at the end I will get the results.”
