Black Stars midfielder Thomas Teye Partey has apologized to Ghanaians for the team’s failure to win this year’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The Black Stars team led by captain Asamoah Gyan went into the competition with the aim of ending the country’s 35-year wait for an AFCON title.
Partey who was playing his first AFCON was a revelation in Ghana’s set-up as he won a lot of hearts but the four-time African champions failed to annex their fifth continental glory.
The West African giants after their inability to win the bronze medal following their 1-0 loss to Burkina Faso on Saturday, Partey took to his official Instagram page and wrote:
“It was the dream and wish of all Ghanaians to win the prestigious cup of AFCON 2017 but unfortunately we couldn’t attain that goal . We are sorry for disappointing all Ghanaians around the world who have given us the massive support and rallied behind us since day 1.
“Nevertheless all I can say is a big thank you to Ghana for giving me this opportunity to serve my beloved country.
All is not lost and we hope to come back strongly the next time and bring joy to the faces of all Ghanaians.
“Long live Ghana !
Long live the black stars!!.”
