Partey will ‘be better’ than Michael Essien – Osei Palmer

Tema Youth President, Wilfred Osei Kwaku “Palmer” has backed Thomas Partey to “be better” than his idol Michael Essien.

Partey has so far impressed in a Gunners shirt since he completed the switch from Atletico Madrid.

He told The Mail: “They share a similar role. Essien was box-to-box and also applies the brain-work.

“Thomas has got good timing, energy but not as boisterous.”

“He can turn a defensive position into an offensive opportunity. He plays long searching passes.”

“Thomas will grow and have better qualities than Essien, trust me. Yes, Thomas will give you something better.”
