Ghanaian international, Thomas Partey will be recognised as a La Liga champion despite plying his trade at Arsenal in the English Premiere League.
Thomas got only three appearances for Atletico Madrid before moving to Arsenal in a dramatic deadline day move.
Football fans especially Ghanaians and Arsenal fans have raised questions on whether Partey will be recognised as a La Liga champion or not.
Responding to a question posed by Ghana’s sports outlet, Joy Sports, Spanish Sports expert Guillem Balague confirmed that the former Tema Youths player would be recognized as a La Liga champion.
“Yes, Thomas Partey is officially LaLiga champion. He played three games [for Atlético this season] – two [games] from the start. We don’t give medals [in LaLiga] but he is officially champion.” he said.
According to him, Thomas Partey was officially registered as an Atlectico Madrid Player at the start of the 2020/2021 season. Partey thus deserves a share of this victory because of his contribution in the 3 games he played for the Spanish side.
The Madrid based Spanish club were crowned the 2020/2021 La Liga Santander champions after they came from behind to beat relegated Real Valladolid 2:1.
