Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Teye Partey says he is ready to welcome competition from Thomas Lemar.
Lemar joined the Madrid based club from French giants AS Monaco this summer.
“Competition within a team is normal, as it always is. What you must do is concentrate and continue playing as a team to fight for titles,” he said.
“It is also very important that there are players coming from the youth system, it isn’t easy to do that.
“They serve as the perfect example for other young people who want to become like them.”
