Ghana and Arsenal midfielder, Thomas Teye Partey has reportedly converted to Islam after months of studying the religion at his base in England.
The 28-year-old is yet to confirm his switch in religions, but reports widespread on social media have stated he is now a Muslim.
Being a Christian since infancy, it surprises what had caused his decision. Although there hasn’t been an official statement released to the public about the footballer’s sudden decision to change his religion to Islam,
“..but information gathered also disclosed Partey is dating a Moroccan lady, who could be behind his decision to convert”, Sportsbrief has reported.
Also, others are speculating that, Partey’s move from the Spanish League to the Premier League might have influenced his decision to switch his religion.
England is well known to have a huge number of Islamic believers and since he will be playing for Arsenal, Thomas might have found it appropriate to change his religion.
As a reminder, Thomas Partey has signed a 5 year deal of £52,000,000 contract with the Arsenal F.C. The deal includes an annual average salary of £10,400,000.
