Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone has named Ghana’s Thomas Partey among his squad for Thursday’s Europa League against Lokomotiv Moskva.
The Spanish giants travel to Russia for the first leg of the round of 16 clash.
Partey after a consistent performance earned himself a place in the 20-man list for the trip.
The Ghanaian international has been one of Atletico Madrid’s most improved players so far this season.
Diego Simeone rediscovered his confidence in the midfielder who was once sent on loan after struggling to break into the first team at Atletico.
The 24-year-old was recently handed a contract extension to keep him at the La Liga Club until 2023.
