Black Stars deputy captain, Thomas Teye Partey has shrugged off criticisms that he doesn’t give his best performance for the national team.
He said he mostly adheres to instructions given to him by the technical team hence anything he does is for the collective good of the team.
Speaking ahead of Ghana’s crucial game against Uruguay at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the Arsenal midfielder said he always gives out his best for Ghana.
“Most people expect a lot from me but we are playing as a team and I listen to the coach and do what he tells me”.
“You know you can do something better but you have to stick to what the team wants and not individuality”.
Also talking ahead of the match tomorrow, Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez said the acrimony Ghanaians feel for him is misplaced.
The former Barcelona goal-poacher said Ghanaians should rather direct their anger to the player that missed the resulting penalty from his handball.
Although Suarez was sent off for his unsporting act and Ghana awarded a penalty, Asamoah Gyan missed from the spot.
Uruguay eventually won the game 4-2 on penalties to progress to the semi-final of the World Cup at the expense of Ghana.
