Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey is a major doubt for their Champions League showdown with RB Leipzig on August 13.
The Ghanaian international wobbled off injured during Atletico’s final La Liga game of the 2019-20 season, with Simeone confirming he was struggling with a muscle injury.
FootballMadeInGhana gathers that Partey missed the club’s first training session following a brief end of season break, alongside Croatian international Sime Vrsaljko, who is battling a knee problem.
The Madrid-based outfit now face a anxious wait to see if the 27 year old can recover in time for the crucial quarter final encounter next month.
Partey has been a key figure for Diego Simeone’s side this season, he played a starring role for Atleti in their Champions League triumph over Liverpool at the round of 16 stage.
