Thomas Partey trains with Black Stars

Thomas Partey dropped from Arsenal squad

Ghana international, Thomas Partey, will remain at Arsenal training grounds, Colney, to continue his recovery from a minor injury as the Gunners head to the USA for pre-season.

The 29-year-old who reported to camp last week has been training with his teammates.

Partey was involved in Arsenal’s 3-3 stalemate against German outfit Nurnberg last week as part of their preparations ahead of the new season.

However, the Black Stars midfielder has been left out of Arsenal’s travelling squad to the USA due to an injury.

Partey is expected to join his teammates in the USA next week together with England youngster, Emile Smith Rowe.

The Premier League giants have decided to leave the pair behind to recover fully before they join their teammates in the North American country.

In a statement on their official website Arsenal confirmed that “the players who are not part of the squad will be working hard on their fitness and/or recovering from injury.” This is the reason given for Reiss Nelson’s absence.

As part of Arsenal’s pre-season in the USA, the Premier League side will face MLS All-Stars team at Audi Field, Washington D.C on Wednesday, July 19.

The Gunners are expected to play Manchester United in the MetLife Stadium on Saturday, July 22 in New Jersey before the wrap up their tour with a game against Barcelona on Wednesday, July 26 at SoFi Stadium.
