Ghana midfielder Buaben relishing being the voice of experience at Partick Thistle

Partick Thistle midfielder Prince Buaben is relishing his role as one of the more senior figures at the club.

The Ghana international is just 25-years-old, but is one of the more experienced players at Partick Thistle, and admits the game in Scotland has changed dramatically from when he was at Dundee United.

Buaben arrived at Tannadice as a 19-year-old in 2007, and was involved in a squad that featured the likes of Barry Robson and Lee Wilkie, who helped guide him through his first months in Scotland.

But since returning to Scotland with Partick Thistle, the former Watford midfielder believes that the average age of squads has got younger, and his experience may help some of the junior members of the Partick Thistle squad.

He said: “First time I played here there were more experienced players, older players.

“I think now there’s more younger players and they’re more exciting to watch, and they’re good quality players. They’re just lacking a bit of experience, but the more games they have the more experience they will get.

“Going back to when I played before here, we had some more experienced players like Barry Robson and Lee Wilkie who know how to manage a game. There are good players, exciting players, but they’re all a bit hyper, forgetting about the other jobs, but that’s football.

The midfielder is also explained that he is trying to pass on some of his experience to some of the Partick youngsters.

He said: “I spoke to Gaz (Fraser). I told him I was the same position as him and I learned a lot from the players around me.

“Even looking at what they used to do, what they used to eat. I try to talk to him every time, so maybe when he gets older he can pass it on to older players.”
