Ghanaian youth midfielder Thomas Partey has insisted Real Mallorca will not be relegated to the Spanish third-tier division despite their stuttering season.
Mallorca have papered their poor form in the Segunda Divison picking 4 points from an available 6 in their last 2 games and occupy 10th berth on the section.
However, their 40 points from 30 games does not make them feel comfortable enough as they are just 3 points better than 19th placed Ponferradina who are in the drop-zone.
“I admit we need to fight hard to survive in the league because of the competitive nature of things but we won’t be relegated,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
Mallorca appointed Spanish tactician Lluis Carreras as replacement for the misfiring Jose Luis Oltra and the Partey is confident Oltra’s new era will bring new success.
“The new coach has come with fresh things and we have performed well in our last two games and hopefully we will continue on that scale and push up the ladder for a play-off place,” the 20-year-old former Ghana U20 invitee added.
Partey joined Mallorca on loan from giants Atletico Madrid and he has been overly impressive in the season as he has scored 4 goals in 26 appearances from midfield.
