Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, says it is great news Ghana’s Thomas Partey returned to training after his injury layoff.
The 30-year-old has been on the sidelines for over a month now with a muscle injury, missing six Arsenal games and Ghana’s September international games.
Arteta confirmed Thomas Partey is now training with the team for the past three days and has been included in his squad for Tuesday’s Champions League fixture against Lens.
Speaking ahead of the game, Arteta said: “He’s progressed really well in the last two weeks and he managed to train in the last two or three days with the team and that’s great news for us obviously
“I think his progression in the last week has been very good. He might have some exposure tomorrow depending how the game goes.
He added: “He’s a big player and we know what he brings to the team. He knows exactly what we need and with the injuries we had to other players in midfield and at the back he complements us in a great way and gives us options. So it’s great to have him back again.”
