Thomas Partey, Deputy Captain of the Black Stars, has said that the reason he converted to Islam was due to the influence of his fiancée.
It has been suggested that the Arsenal footballer has converted to Islam based on images that have been posted on social media.
In a casual chat with his buddy Nana Aba Anamoah, he revealed that for the love of his new fiancée, he was forced to convert to Islam in order to be able to settle down with her. He added that this decision was motivated by the want to be with her.
“I’m a Muslim,” he said adding that “I have a girl I love, I know my sidechics will leave me but it’s no problem”.
He continued ” I grew up with Muslims so at the end of the day it’s the same thing”.
When he intends to get married to the lady, Partey said “I’m already married and my Muslim name is Yakubu,” he said.
