Arsenal Manager Mikel Arteta has given an update on when Ghanaian player Thomas Teye Partey will return to the field of play.
Thomas Partey suffered a muscle injury and has been out of action since October. The Ghanaians last game for Arsenal was in their 1-0 victory against Defending league champions Manchester City.
In a pre match press conference ahead of the game against Aston Villa this weekend, Mikel Arteta believes its too too early to give a timeframe for the return date of the midfieder.
We don’t know, he’s getting a very good evolution in the injury but it’s a bit early to get a timeframe. That would be incredibly fast if he’s able to do that, so we’re going to have to wait. We’re quite short with five key players for us not being available for us for a bit of time, but we have to continue”
Thomas Partey is also a doubt for the 2024 African Cup of Nations tournament to be hosted by Ivory Coast.
