Lorient striker Majeed Waris hails Kwadwo Asamoah’s comeback into the Black Stars

Lorient and Ghana striker Majeed Waris has hailed Kwadwo Asamoah’s decision to return into the Black Stars following a two-year absence.

The Juventus star announced his readiness to come back into the Black Stars a few days ago and the Lorient striker thinks it’s a good decision for him (Kwadwo) and the team.

‘For me I think it’s a fantastic decision. Kwadwo Asamoah is someone I admire a lot and he has been a great player since the day I first watched him,’ Waris told

‘He is a very good player and the team needs players like that. He is experienced and matured and will put a lot of balance into the team,’ he added.

Kwadwo Asamoah has been out of the Black Stars since sustaining an injury a few days to the 2015 AFCON.

Former Ghana coach Avram Grant is reported to have held a series of meetings with the Juventus star but could not lure him back into the team.
