Meanwhile, he also revealed that he had to reply to some of his father’s trolls on social media. C.K Akonnor, came under heavy criticism by a large fraction of Ghanaians who were not impressed with how he handled the senior national team.

“I replied some of them but later realized that I shouldn’t have. Some guy was insulting him on twitter. And I replied but used some words that I shouldn’t have. When my father (C.K Akonnor) advised Thomas Partey not to join Arsenal, someone commented and said he did not do anything with his career and will even rush to be a ball boy at Arsenal.”
