It has become a familiar sighting to see black professional footballers being given what-often appears derogatory descriptions anytime they appear in the media spotlight.
The transfer generated so much attention from media portals across the globe especially English and Ghanaian media portals who took up various angles to analyse the £45 million transfer coup for the highly-rated midfielder.
Popular UK-based media portal, The Sun in announcing the transfer used rather unfortunate and inappropriate description on the Ghanaian who hails from Krobo Odumase in the Eastern part of Ghana.
The report attracted public outcry from the Ghanaian most especially on social media who were irked by how the media portal described the 27-year-old.
Media personality, Dzifa Gbeho-Bampoh, however, went a step further to contact The Sun to express her dissatisfaction over their publication.
This apparently yielded a positive response from the UK-based news portal who apologised and further edited the said post accordingly.
Dzifa took to her Facebook page to announce the latest on the issue.
Meanwhile, Thomas Partey is expected to join Arsenal for his first training session after Ghana’s second international friendly which is against Qatar on Monday.
