Former Ghana goalkeeper Abubakari Damba believes Amiens midfielder Emmanuel Lomotey posses similar qualities with Arsenal star Thomas Partey.
Lomotey has received wide backlash since Friday after earning another call up to the senior national team ahead of the double header AFCON qualifiers against Sudan, with many fans and pundits insisting he does not merit an invite.
But Damba has strongly backed the player, who he thinks has a lot to give to the Black Stars.
“For now we may not be getting the best performances from Lomotey, but in 2 years he will take over the midfield,” Damba said on Citi TV’s “The Tracker” show Monday.
“This is a box to box midfielder like Thomas Partey. No disrespect to Thomas but Lomotey, technically, he is a delight to watch.
“Like I said before, Lomotey is a complete player, he is a great passer of the ball and he has an excellent delivery from dead ball situations,” he concluded.
The Black Stars will face Sudan on November 12 in Ghana before traveling to Omdurman for the second leg five days later.
