Former Tema Youth coach Tony Lokko has tipped Thomas Partey to make a big impact at Arsenal.
Lokko, who currently manages Ghana Premier League side Inter Allies, believes the 27-year-old has the quality to surpass Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira.
Partey has hit the ground running with two superb displays for the Gunners in the Premier League defeat to Man City and more crucially the side’s comeback win over Rapid Vienna in the Europa League.
The Ghanaian featured as Arsenal lost 1-0 at home to Leicester City on Sunday.
But Tony Lokko, who coached the midfielder as a teenager, has backed the former Atletico Madrid to excel in London.
“I believe he’s going to have a big impact, Lokko told The Mail on Sunday
“I see him play like Vieira. But he is more skilful.
“Vieira was a ball-winner but, with Thomas, he is more offensive.
“Thomas is kind-hearted. He is not the type to get angry. Very focused. A good listener.
“He always wants to learn more. And he will not relent on something until he is able to do it. Now he has.
“He is now the Thomas that I expected.”
