Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey clarifies 'unhappy' comments
Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey has clarified comments made recently about his future at Spanish side Atletico Madrid.
Partey was quoted after Saturday’s victory over Espanyol admitting that he sometimes feels unhappy at the club due to his lack of game time at the club.
Sometimes I feel unhappy at Atlético," stated Thomas an interview with Spanish TV channel, Gol. “You have to play in the important games to feel happy, to feel stronger and more confident”.
A statement that has since been interpreted as fanning the flames for a move to either Arsenal or PSG.
However, 25-year-old has moved to dismiss the rumors in a series of tweets committing his future to the Rojiblancos.
”On Saturday after the game I made some comments that havent been taken as they were meant to be understood and I would like to explain myself more clearly. Atlético is the club where I want to be and where I would like to continue to grow as a player, because of the club and because of the fans. It is true that I feel I can still be even more important and that's why I work hard every day. I don't want to settle for less and that is good for me to be the best player I can be. Happy Christmas and Aupa Atleti!” He tweeted
Partey has played in 19 of Atlético's 23 LaLiga and Champions League games this season, although majority of those have been from the bench.
