Ghana forward, Abdul Majeed Waris, says he is very willing to put in the needed hard work to succeed at FC Porto during his loan spell.
Waris joined the team last Friday from French side, Lorient, until the end of the season.
He had been targeted by several sides including Burnley, West Ham and Caen but it was the 2004 Champions League winners who got his services and he stated that he was itching to contribute his quota to the team’s season.
“I am the kind of player who will fight for the team, who will like to win games and trophies and fight for the badge.
When people talk of Portuguese football, Porto is the name that comes to mind and I know that my dreams will come true with them.
I will play at the highest level of football. I spoke to people like Christian Atsu, who played here at a point, and he urged me to make the move.”
Even before going onto the pitch to play his first match for the team, Waris said he knew of the team’s attacking quality and he was ready to add his goals to the tally.
“I have watched Vincent Aboubakar and Yacine Brahimi and they are fantastic players. They score regularly and I hope to find the net too to help so we win together.”
Waris had his first training session on Saturday after he signed on Friday and FC Porto coach, Sergio Conceicao, spoke highly of the former Right To Dream Academy player.
“Waris? I know him last year from the French League. I appreciate his quality and that is why we have brought him in to try to help us and to be another option. ”
