Ghana international Abdul Majeed Waris says when his club, Lorient are still going down it doesn’t reflect the importance of his goals.
Lorient finished the season on the relegation play-off spot in the French Ligue 1 and they were relegated to the Ligue 2 after losing to Troyes in the play-offs.
The well-travelled striker, who scored for his club as they lost 2-1 to Troyes on aggregate, insisted that he places team glory ahead of personal glory.
“I will say it’s been a very difficult season for the team even though I did very well personally,” Waris told GHANAsoccernet.com
“I am the kind of person who thinks about team glory than personal glory.
"If I’m scoring the goals and the team is still going down it doesn’t reflect the importance of the goals."
The 25-year-old marksman made 35 league appearances for Lorient during the 2016/17 season - netting nine goals in the process.
Waris recently made his return to the Ghana senior national team against Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.
