Thomas Partey’s agents apologised after a post mentioning the possible next clubs for the Atletico Madrid star appeared on the agency’s Instagram account.
The future of the midfielder was a hot issue not so long ago, with Arsenal being interested in signing the international Ghana. Last week, Partey’s father announced that his son had entered into negotiations with the Gunners over a summer move-only to contradict the reports of his managers, JJ Sports.
But after posting a picture, originally created by Transfermarkt, on their Instagram account, the agency itself added more fuel to the fire, asking fans to choose his next club on Wednesday.
The message listed Partey’s possible destinations, namely, Manchester United, Arsenal, PSG, Bayern Munich, and Juventus. It was removed later that day.
The organization has now released an apologising statement for the “unfortunate mistake” and promised to conduct an internal investigation.
The article, translated from Spanish, read: “With regard to the publication made on our Instagram account today, Wednesday, April 29, 2020, about the future of our player Thomas Partey, from J.J. Sport Managers, we wish to say that this publication has not been accepted by the company’s management.
“The publication has been deleted as soon when we became informed of its presence, and the passwords for all of our social accounts have been changed to limit access only to important staff. With this statement we want to provide some clarification to any misunderstandings that might happen.”
