Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Taye Partey has been SACKED from the Black Stars camp after he turned up late for training ahead of an international friendly against Morocco on Tuesday.
Black Stars coach CK Akonnor dismissed the 27-year-old from camp after he showed up at the team’s camp just two days before the team emplaned to Rabat, the capital city Morocco.
The attitude of Partey, who is the deputy captain of the team has shocked the nation and questions his commitment and leadership role in the team.
In order to ensure there is unity and discipline in the team, Akonnor has axed the former Atletico Madrid midfielder from his team for the international friendly against the Atlas Lions in Rabat on Tuesday.
Reports indicate that Partey was reluctant to join the Black Stars Camp despite arriving in his native country for holidays.
Several members of the squad have joined the squad after Al-Fayha star Samuel Owusu joined hours after arriving in the West African nation.
It’s also remarkably striking that several global top stars who enjoyed successful campaigns in Europe have joined their respective national team camps.
Liverpool duo Sadio Mane and Mo Salah have joined Senegal and Egypt squad respectively despite enjoying a relatively successful campaigns in England.
However, there is no show from the Ghana vice-captain as he only showed his face in Cape Coast amid fears of being yanked from the team.
Even Captain Andre Ayew, who was handed some time off due to his involvement in the English Championship play-offs joined the rest of his colleagues for the trip to Rabat.
The four-time African Champions are billed to play Morocco in Rabat on June 8 and before facing Ivory Coast on June 12 at the Cape Coast Stadium.
Ghana has not been able to lift the African cup since 1982, and this current group has been tipped by many to win it after the emergence of some outstanding talents in the squad.
The likes of Captain Ayew and his brother Jordan, Mohammed Kudus, Mubarak Wakaso, and quite recently Kamal Deen Sulemana and Abdul Fataw Issahaku.
