Thomas Partey make Spanish newspaper headlines


Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey dominated the front pages of Spanish biggest newspapers Marca and AS after scoring to send Atletico Madrid top of La Liga.

The goal was Partey’s first in the Spanish top-flight.

Atletico Madrid had failed to make the most of their opportunities before Partey replaced Jackson Martinez in the 73rd minute and it took him only seven minutes to score the match winner for Roji-Blancos.

He collected a pass from Gabi, burst through the centre of the penalty area and struck a tame shot but fortunately for him Levante goalkeeper Marino could not hold on as the ball crept over the line.

And two of Spain’s most read newspapers, Marca and AS were full of praise for the 22-year old Odumase krobo born.
