Spain-based Ghanaian midfielder, Thomas Teye Partey, came off the bench to provide a crucial assist for Athletico Madrid in a landslide 4-1 win at Sporting Gijon.
The Athletico Madrid midfielder spiced up his second half cameo for the Rojiblancos with a precise ball to Kevin Gameiro in a deceptive win for Diego Simeone and his charges. The 22 year old former Almeria midfielder inked his name into the faithful of the 2014 Spanish champions with an emphatic performance galvanised by the crucial assist.
The Black Stars defensive midfielder replaced Belgian star Yannick Carraso, who had earlier on opened the scoring for the visitors. Sergio Alvarez levelled the scores for the host only for Gameiro to complete a personal treble in a space of 5 minutes. Partey and Greizman both assisted the French man to turn the game on its head in the final 10 minutes.
