Black Stars Coach Charlie Kwablah Akonnor has also added his voice to those who compare The playing style of Michael Essien to that of Thomas Partey.
According to the gaffer, he thinks the two are different players altogether and we should stop comparing them.
“Michael is a box to box midfielder and Partey has the flexibility and the ability to give incisive passes but Essien don’t have that quality”.
“they are all good midfielders with different playing style. The way Essien plays is totally different from that of Partey and the vice versa” he told Joy Sports.
Essien is currently playing for Azerbaijan club Sabail FK, whilst Partey plays for Spanish Side Atletico Madrid.
Akonnor was engaged as Black Stars coach following the FA’s decision not to renew the contract of Kwasi Appiah who coach the senior national team for two and half years.
He is reported to have signed a two-year deal worth $25,000 every month.
