Manchester United legend Roy Keane has hailed Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey after his performance against Manchester United on Sunday and wish he was a United player.
The £45 million Gunners midfielder was absolutely impressive as Mikel Arteta’s side secured a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.
“Brilliant, I thought he was outstanding,” Keane told Sky Sports when asked about Partey’s performance.
“We said before the game, this guy’s no mug, he’s played for a big club, he’s played in big competitions.
“We saw today, when you watch a player live that’s when you can judge a player.
“The more I look at him the more I wish he was in Man United’s midfield.
“Big, strong, aggressive, obviously going back with Arsenal I had my battles with Patrick Vieira, I think this kid has got a chance of matching what Patrick used to do.
“He’s big, he’s strong, he’s aggressive and he likes to pass it forward. He can deal with the ball, he looks comfortable on the ball, just small little details, composure, good first touch, retaining possession, that’s the name of the game.”
