Majeed Waris was Ghana’s top performing player in Europe this past season, according to Asamoah Gyan.
Waris scored nine goals in 35 Ligue 1 appearances through the campaign, but his efforts weren’t enough to prevent relegation for Lorient.
Despite his side’s slide out of the top flight of French football, Gyan believes Waris had an excellent season.
“Waris is my best Ghanaian player in Europe this season,” Gyan said in an interview with Metro TV, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
“Seriously, Waris was in top form, he was scoring some good goals, though Lorient were relegated I feel he had a fantastic season with them.”
Waris and Gyan will vie for a place in the Black Stars’ starting XI when they play further friendlies against Mexico and United States in late June and early July.
