Keane: Where Arsenal midfielder Partey must improve

Manchester United great Roy Keane is critical of Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey.

Keane claimed Thomas Partey lacks “leadership skills" after Ghana's dramatic loss to Portugal.

He said on ITV: “Well he's having a very good season. He's settled down, he had a lot of injury problems when he first went to Arsenal.

“He's got a big role here because there are some inexperienced players around him. I'm still not convinced he's got those leadership skills.

“But a very good player and he'll have a big part to play today because there's a big responsibility, particularly in the middle of the park, of course a huge position on the pitch.

“He's had a good season, he should be confident, but it's a big challenge for him in the middle of the park to help the players around him."
