Ghanaian international Thomas Partey has affirmed that he enjoyed his late goal for Atletico Madrid in their 3-2 win over Eibar over the weekend when he climbed off the bench.

The La Liga league leaders conceded two early goals in the first half before fighting back to bag all three points. A dramatic equalizer from super-sub Partey together with goals from Joao Felix and Vitolo steered the Rojiblancos past their opponent.

According to the Black Stars midfielder, though he always wants to start in games, moments of that sort makes coming off the bench special and not so bad.

Speaking in a post-match interview after the Sunday’s impressive win at the Wanda Metropolitano, Partey shared, “There are always moments in the field that you want to play more minutes. There are times when things go well without playing many minutes. I always want to play more minutes”.

He continued, “We are all willing to play and when you start on the bench you also have to be happy because you can get moments so they are worth more than starting the game”.
