As ive always said Dede Ayew shouldn’t be made to come near the NT ever again! These are some of the things a captain should seek for when he meets the authorities but that guy is only interested in clapping and taking pics !

@benkymens commented:

Bold call by Partey. Sad part is that Baweezy and Mustapha Yusif will not heed to that call.

@favoredddd remarked:

This is what the national team should be doing….advocating for things that will safeguard the future of football in Ghana for all potential Ghanaian footballers

@FelixRomark added:

Nice on Partey. We play at one of the worst stadiums in Africa.
