Manchester United legend, Roy Keane believes Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Partey lacks the ‘leadership skills’ to galvanise Ghana at the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Partey has established himself as one of Arsenal’s key players this season.
The 29-year-old has started 11 of Arsenal’s 14 league matches, helping the Gunners surge to the top of the Premier League with five points ahead of second-position Manchester City
But he was unable to cause an upset for Portugal as Ghana lost 3-2 in their World Cup opener against the European giants on Thursday.
Before the match, Kane questioned Partey’s leadership skills.
“Well, he is having a very good season,” Keane told ITV Sport.
“He has settled down, he had a lot of injury problems when he first went to Arsenal.
“He has got a big role here because there are some inexperienced players around him [in the Blacks Stars squad]. I am still not convinced he’s got those leadership skills.”
