‘Lucky Number For Me’ – Partey Handed Jersey Number Five For Arsenal

The 28-year-old Black Star is expected to play a crucial role for the North Londoners who are aiming at battling for top positions.

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has finally been handed a new jersey number ahead of the 2021-22 Premier League campaign.

The former Atletico Madrid star, who joined the Gunners from the Spanish champions at the beginning of last season, will now wear jersey number five.

Arsenal have confirmed in a statement on their official website: “Thomas Partey will wear the No. 5 shirt for the forthcoming season, changing from the No. 18 he wore following his arrival from Atletico Madrid in October.

Talking about the change of number, Partey said: “I like the No. 5 because it's one of the most important numbers in the team and it is also a lucky number for me.”

The 28-year-old wears the same number for the Ghana national team and it was also his favourite while with Atletico Madrid.
