Partey was runner-up in the 2016 Champions League final to city rivals Real Madrid and won the 2018 Europa League and Uefa Super Cup. He is also the recipient of the 2018 and 2019 Ghana Player of the Year.

“Thomas [Partey] is such a good player. I’d have loved to play with him,” Essien – who is 11 years older than Partey said in an Instagram Live interview.

“He is a young and talented player making waves in Europe. He is one player I’d liked to play alongside but it will never happen.

“It is their time at the Black Stars now so we have to support them and hopefully they can take it from where we left off.”
