Ghana and Atletico Madrid ace Thomas Partey has expressed his gratitude after been named as the Man of the Year in Sports at the Emy Africa Awards 2020.
Partey ward off stern competitions from boxer Wasilu Mohammed, Crystal Palace attacker Jordan Ayew as well as Black Stars Coach CK Akonnor to win the Man of the Year in Sports Award.
And the 27-year took to Twitter to acknowledge every individual who has contributed to his success.
