Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey has commended his side’s performance in their 2-0 win over AS Monaco in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.
Diego Simeone’s side booked their place to the next round of the competition courtesy of goals from Koke and Antoine Griezmann at Wanda Metropolitano.
With a game to spare, the Rojiblanco sit two points above second-placed Borussia Dortmund, who held Club Brugge to a scoreless draw in the other Group A fixture to secure the second qualification ticket.
“We did a great job today,” Partey said after the game, as reported by his club’s official website.
“We deserved the win and now we have to think about the next match.
“We’re strong, we’re a team.
“We’re doing well and we have to continue like this.”
Partey played a pivotal role in Wednesday’s victory, his top performance in midfield helping his side secure a clean sheet.
It was his first outing in the Champions League this term.
Atletico’s next game comes in the Spanish La Liga where they play away to Girona on Sunday.
