Nigerian striker Fanendo Adi has set a personal goals’ target of 20 goals in the 2017 MLS season with Portland Timbers.
Portland will open their 2017 season on Friday, March 3, at home against Minnesota United FC.
Adi, who traveled with his team to Tucson for the pre-season training, told the club's TV that he is happy to return to duty and hopes to score more goals in the new campaign.
"Eighteen goals not good enough, 20 goals, that is it. Together we will achieve that,” he declared.
"I feel good to be back, I am excited to see the boys back to duty and smiling. We can't wait to get back to work. We are all excited for what the year will bring."
Adi scored 18 goals in 2015 to help his team win the MLS Cup and 16 goals in 2016.
