Thomas Partey’s Atletico Madrid stint

Thomas Partey has been on Atletico Madrid’s books for all of his senior career.

In total, Partey has racked up 174 appearances across all competitions for the La Liga giants, in which the defensive-minded midfielder has scored 15 and assisted 12.

Partey already has 35 appearances to his name this term, the latest of which came on Wednesday when Atletico Madrid travelled to Anfield for the second of two Champions League last 16 ties.

Atletico already had a 1-0 lead from the first leg and after extra time at Anfield, Diego Simeone’s side emerged with a hard-fought 3-2 victory.
