Robbie of AFTV conducted the interview with Gabby Otchere Darko who provided an update on Thomas Partey’s injury situation and promised that the midfielder will be back soon.
After discovering that Gabby Otchere-Darko was Partey’s defence lawyer, some Arsenal fans hit out at the AFTV channel for interviewing the lawyer of a player who they alleged is under some investigation.
According to them, the player has been under investigation over some allegations and therefore it is not right for AFTV, which seeks to give the fans a platform to air their views, to give a platform for the lawyer of the said player.
Entertainment journalist, Olele Salvador provided clarification on the matter stating that the AFTV channelled was compelled by fans of Arsenal to delete the video after they flooded the comment section of the video on YouTube.
“@DTSIntel reveal that a YouTube interview conducted by Robbie Lyle of Arsenal Fan TV (AFTV) with Gabby Otchere Darko, allegedly Thomas Partey’s lawyer, and a conversation with Stonebwoy, has been removed by the channel due to severe backlash from some sections of the Arsenal FC fanbase.
“Some fans called for the cancellation of the YouTube channel due to connections with rape allegations against the Ghanaian and Premier League midfielder.
“Initially, a thumbnail used for the video was changed, but it failed to alleviate the pressure, leading to the video being taken down.”

Gabby, who is a staunch Arsenal fan, has been spotted many times with the player both in Ghana and London and has also been captured a couple of times at the Emirates Stadium.
Speaking with Asempa FM in March 2023, on how foreign clubs generate funds from their own players, Gabby confirmed that Partey is his client and that he has the benefit of watching games at the Emirates for free using the player’s box in the stands.
“If you go to Emirates, which is my number one stadium and probably I’d add Kumasi Sports Stadium- Baba Yara. The players, who are paid 100,000 pounds and whatnot, buy boxes. If I visit Emirate, Thomas Partey is my client; I’m his lawyer, so I sit at his box for free,” he said.
