Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta wants Ghanaian midfielder Thomas Partey to carry responsibility out of young players in the team and lead the club to success.
Partey is yet to live up to expectations after joining the Gunners from Spanish Atletico Madrid in 2020 summer transfer window.
His spell with the London based club has been plagued by injuries.
The deputy Ghana captain missed the clubs first three matches of the season after sustaining an injury during pre-season but is in contention to start against Norwich City this weekend.
However, according to Mikel Arteta, Partey being one of the leaders in the team must carry responsibility out of the young players and lead the club.
“He is a player that has to be one of the leaders, he has to be the boss in midfield and one of the senior players that has to carry responsibility out of the young players and lead. We have been missing that big time.
“He has that winning culture because he has won a lot in the game already, and to have these kinds of players in the team is extremely important.
“So, he has got a huge role to play in the team.” He said.
