Michael Essien predicts Thomas Partey as future Ghana captain

Former Ghana international Michael Essien has backed Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey to skipper the Black Stars in future.

The 25-year-old has become a key player for four-time Africa champions since making his debut for the side against Mauritius in 2016.

He has for some time now been acting as the stand-in captain of the side in the absence of Asamoah Gyan and his assistance Andre Ayew.

The former Tema Youth player led the Black Stars team in the double-header international friendly matches against Japan and Iceland in June.
