Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris disagrees his club form has been poor since his move to Spartak Moscow.

The 22-year-old joined the Russian club haven emerged the best player and top scorer in Sweden after the 2012 season.

Waris has only managed one goal in as many competitive matches for the Red-Whites.

But the ex BK Hacken star insists his porous scoring record at club record doesn’t tell the whole story as he began the season with injury and subsequent complications in securing regular first team action.

“I understand I have scored like one goal but you also have to understand that at the beginning of the season I was suffering from a long term injury and I missed most of the games,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“And when I got back the other striker was scoring a lot of goals but I am happy I finally scored a goal.

“I just have to keep working really hard to make sure I score more goals before the season finishes because this is just the half way.

“Just work hard and then get some more playing time and score more goals.

“I don’t actually think like the club side has been really bad for me because at the beginning of the season I was doing really well – in the pre-season I was scoring.

“And then when I was injured the other striker was scoring almost every week and it is kind of very difficult to take a striker who is scoring every week out.”

Waris moved to Sweden after graduating from Hartpury College.

The Ghana international is a graduate of the Right to Dream Academy.
