Thomas Partey has stated he is looking to help Ghana reach higher heights after being named as new deputy captain of the national team.
On Sunday, the midfielder was rewarded with the vice-captain role for his team influence since joining the Black Stars in 2016.
Taking over from Inter Milan defender Kwadwo Asamoah, Partey will provide support for main captain Andre Ayew, who kept his position despite the leadership shakeup.
“It is a big honour to be chosen for this position in the national team,” the 27-year-old stated in an appreciation message.
“Thanks to the technical team for making me one of the leaders of our beloved national team.”
“We will keep working hard to help this great football nation.”
“Congrats to my colleagues Andre Ayew and Richard Ofori as well.”
“Together we stand. God bless our homeland Ghana.”
Partey made his international debut for Ghana as a second-half substitute in a 2-0 triumph over Mauritius in an AFCON 2017.
A year later, he registered a sensational hat-trick as the Black Stars thrashed Congo 5-1 in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.
He represented Ghana at the 2017 and 2019 Afcon tournaments.
