Jacob Partey, father of Thomas Partey is confident the Atletico Madrid star will be a good assistant to Black Stars captain Andre Ayew.

Partey and goalkeeper Richard Ofori have been appointed as assistant captains by head coach Charles Akonnor.

Partey, 27, has been in the Black Stars for four years and his new role confirms his importance to the team.

“Partey is a calm guy and he has exhibited it at camp. I’m sure he will be able to work with his captain, Dede Ayew.

“My son is very humble, he respects his leaders and I’m sure that calmness will prevail for the entire,” Jacob said on Koforidua-based Bryt FM.

Partey made his Black Stars debut in 2016 and has played 27 matches since, scoring 10 goals.
