Young Ghanaian striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is excited to have finally ended his lean spell with a goal for Sassulo over the weekend.
The 19-year-old began the season on a roll â€“ scoring eight goals in five matches before injury set in.
The on-loan Genoa striker until the weekend had gone over five games without a goal and shares his relief at getting his name back on the scoresheets.
â€œIt hasnâ€™t been easy throughout this period, working and training very hard and not being able to score as a striker,â€ he said.
â€œThankfully the Lord showed his favour upon me and everything was excellent.
â€œSome of the problems were through the injury because I was getting a series of injuries but thankfully that is behind me.â€
Boakye-Yiadom adds he is looking to hit his pre-season target of a 15-goal haul with nine games left to go in the Italian Serie-B.
â€œHopefully I could add five goals more to reach the 15-goal target I set for myself this season.â€
