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”.

Abdul Majeed Warris wasn’t part of the Black Stars team that represented Ghana at the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.

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.
