The Ghanaian footballer who plays for the Arsenal’s Club Team is in a big trouble…
Thomas Partey allegedly breached Covid rules to attend an illegal party after the Arsenal star was reportedly captured on camera at a London bash.
According to The Sun, the £45m midfielder was seen in a video shared on Snapchat by a model at around 3:am on Monday, just hours after the Gunners ended their season with a 2-0 win over Brighton in which Partey played the full 90 minutes.
The video appeared to show the 27-year-old dancing with friends among a busy nightclub alongside maskless revellers. The Premier League side are reportedly taking the matter ‘seriously’.
Waiters were seen carrying bottles of Dom Pérignon champagne with sparklers to the group containing Partey, although there is no suggestion that the Ghanaian was drinking.
UK Government Covid rules still ban nightclubs from reopening and it is illegal to host parties or breach the strict rule of six.
Those attending parties made up of more than 15 people risk a monetary fine of £800, while organisers of events containing more than 30 people are liable for fines of up to £10,000.
An Arsenal spokesman told The Sun: “We are taking this matter seriously.
“All our players are regularly reminded of their responsibilities.
“We are dealing with the matter internally and will not make any further comment.”
It has been a tricky first season in English football for the Ghanaian, who moved to north London from Atletico Madrid.
Partey started just 18 of Arsenal’s 38 top flight games, having been sidelined with a hip injury and then a hamstring injury, in a blow to Mikel Arteta.
The Gunners ended the season in eighth place, missing out on European football for the first time in 25 years.
