With Lorient facing the prospect of relegation, Ghanaian Majeed Waris has promised to fight for the club’s Ligue 1 survival.
The Brittany-based club is currently placed third from bottom on the French top flight log, the relegation playoff spot.
They have won three of their last four matches to spark hope of survival, but a 2-0 loss to Montpellier this past weekend is a reminder that they still need a strong finish to the season.
Waris has been one of Lorient’s leading players in the fight against the drop, scoring eight goals from 30 Ligue 1 appearances this season, and he has dedicated himself to saving the club from relegation.
“All the experiences are positive. As long as one continues to play football well,” Waris said, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
“This is the key to getting through this season. Inevitably, in our situation, there is an additional pressure, but it suits me.
“Pressure is part of the game. I am a fighter, the next games will be fights. I am ready, it is in my mentality to fight to win.
“You are not the same player at the beginning of the season. But I will fight to ensure that we stay up this season.”
Lorient’s next Ligue clash sees them host Metz on Saturday evening.
