Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey has been sacked from the Ghana camp after he turned up late for training ahead of the international friendlies against Morocco and Ivory Coast.
Black Stars coach Akonnor dismissed the 27-year-old from camp after he showed up at the team’s training camp just days before the team emplaned to Rabat.

Akonnor has wield the disciplinary axe by asking the former Atletico Madrid midfielder to leave his team for the international friendly against the Atlas Lions in Rabat on Tuesday.
Partey has been reluctant to join the rest of his colleagues as the team intensify preparations for the double friendly games Morocco and Ivory Coast.
The Black Stars will take on the Atlas Lions of Morocco on Tuesday, June 8, in Rabat, before hosting the Elephants of Ivory Coast on Saturday, June 12, at the Cape Coast stadium.
