And Thomas Teye-Partey who is buzzing with confidence going into this weekend’s International friendlies against Mali and Qatar, having joined the team on Wednesday to train at the Emir Sports complex in Antalya, is happy about competition for places and quality of Black Stars players in camp.

Ghana takes on Mali on Friday, October 9 before playing Qatar three days later.

"I feel good, I am so happy to be here again with the Black Stars. About the guys, I think they are doing well, today I can see everyone is trying to do their best, trying you win the heart of the new Coach and I think it’s good, we have a great competition and I think it’s better for the Black Stars."

"We are having a good competition in the team; all the guys are training well. I think this will help the team to improve, everyone will be on their feet trying to win the heart of the Coach and also give more pressure on those that think that they are comfortable, it will energise them to be on their toes to fight to maintain their place in the team."

Thomas Partey on Monday, October 5 became the most expensive Ghanaian signing after sealing a transfer from Atletico Madrid to Arsenal for €50 million.


The record was previously held by Michael Essien when he moved from Lyon to Chelsea in 2005 for £24.4.
