Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Arsenal and deputy Ghana captain Thomas Partey successfully launched his Foundation in his hometown of Odumase-Krobo on Monday.
The Black Stars midfielder outdoored the foundation on Monday, June 14, 2021, as his way of giving back to society and the less privileged.
The 27-year-old is interested in transforming the lives of people in his native after realizing his dream of becoming a professional football despite having to go through the hard way to fulfil his potential.
The Thomas Partey Foundation will not only support the underprivileged in society but it will also support community projects as well help in building infrastructures.
Partey started his football career in Odumase-Krobo where he played for Krobo Youth, before leaving to Ashaiman to continue his football development at Revelation FC.
He proceeded to Tema Youth before a move abroad to join Atletico Madrid.
He joined Arsenal last summer on transfer deadline day for £45million.
KP Boateng turns sports analyst
Speaking about football stars, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Kevin Prince Boateng has become an overnight favourite on German T.V screens with his razor-sharp analysis of the ongoing Euro 2020 championship.
The German-born Ghanaian was named a member of the ARD for EURO 2020 in May and made his debut during the competition’s opening game between Italy and Turkey.
Boateng will be working throughout the summer as a football pundit.
Having played in Italy and Turkey, the 34-year-old revealed it was too early to pick the Azzuris as overwhelming favourites.
“I'm not totally enthusiastic in judging this success because the Turks have never cornered the Azzurri," Boateng said
