Partey filmed singing Arsenal initiation song at team dinner before Leicester

Arsenal new boy Thomas Partey has been filmed singing his initiation song ahead of the Gunners’ Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Club captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang filmed Partey’s efforts and uploaded the clips to his Instagram, with the captions “@thomaspartey5 sorry bro you can’t Escape” and “@thomaspartey5 Partey After partey”.

The 27-year-old had his team-mates clapping along while he sang a song which is believed to be from his native Ghana.

Partey made his full Arsenal debut in their 2-1 win over Rapid Vienna and he was roundly praised for his performance, with BT Sport pundit Owen Hargreaves leading the plaudits.

“Everyone is looking to him and that’s a [No.] 10 pass [made during the game] and he’s a holding midfield player.

“He’s ran the whole game and you can tell he’s been playing in the Champions League because it looks too easy for him.

Ex-Arsenal defender Martin Keown agreed with Hargreaves’ assessment, adding: “Partey immediately showed that touch of class.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta also hailed the midfielder, saying: “He looked really solid, really comfortable, and I think he held the midfield by himself in the second half when we were a little bit more open and took more chances, attacking spaces with some players.

“I think he was fantastic tonight and there is much more to come from him obviously.”
