Black Stars head coach, Milovan Rajevac is confident Thomas Partey will prove critics wrong at the ongoing AFCON 2021 tournament in Cameroon.
The Arsenal midfielder failed to impress on Monday as Ghana succumbed to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Morocco at the Amadhou Ahidjou stadium.
Despite admitting the 28-year old was not at his best in the Morocco game, Rajevac believes Partey will come good as the tournament progresses and show his exceptional qualities.
“We analysed the match [against Morocco]. Maybe Thomas’ performance was not at his [usual] level but he’s a great player and he will prove the critics wrong. I think he will be the best in this tournament,” Rajevac said.
Ghana will take on Gabon on Friday and must avoid defeat in a bid to keep their hopes of progressing to the next round alive.
A win for Gabon on the other hand will see them book a spot in the next round.
