AFCON 2023: Arsenal manager Arteta explains why Ghana did not choose Partey


Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has explained why Thomas Partey has not been selected for Ghana's squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast.

Partey was recently dropped from Ghana's squad for AFCON.

Asked why Partey was not selected by the Black Stars, Arteta said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Sunday's FA Cup third-round tie against Liverpool. He had a long-term injury and really wanted to progress his rehabilitation.

“He really wanted to join the national team, but he was still far from training with the team and it didn't make much sense for him to join.

“Hopefully it'll be a few weeks[until he's healthy again]. How many weeks it takes depends a little bit on how long it takes for the next step of training with the team, but he going well”
