Ghana International Abdul Majeed Warris on Sunday recorded his second goal for the French Ligue One side following his January transfer from Porto.
The 28-year-old scored Le Racing’s second as they defeated Stade Reims 3-0 in the French league.
In a post-match interview, Warris expressed his delight following his switch from the Portuguese giants after being deemed surplus to requirement by coach Sergio Conceicao.
“I am happy that I got my first goal at home. The atmosphere was good and I want to score a lot of goals for this club but I do not want to only score. I want to win matches here too”
“We have a good team here and we can climb even higher on the table. I believe we will work harder and win a lot more games.
“For me, it is not only about the goals. I care more about the team’s victories but then scoring is important”, Warris said, as reported by Citisportsonline.
He added, “Before I came here, there were a number of teams who looked at me but refused to sign me because they felt that I had not played football for six months”.
Should he continue with his form, the forward could earn a call-up by new Ghana coach Charles Akonner ahead of AFCON qualifiers in March.
