The talented striker is harbouring dreams of playing in the local league before he retires from active football

Spartak Moscow striker Abdul Majeed Waris has hinted that he could end his football career in the Ghana Premier League.

Waris, scored his first international goal for the Black Stars in their 4-0 win over Sudan in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Sunday.

The Ghana international was the top scorer in the Swedish top-flight, netting 23 goals in 29 appearances before joining Russian giants Spartak Moscow.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate became the first Ghanaian player abroad to win the goal king crown in a top flight European league with more than 20 goals.

The 21-year-old said he is habouring dreams of playing in the Ghana premiership before he calls time off his football career.

“I have not watched many matches in the local league. I think our local league is good but could be improved. Football evolves every day and so things need to be added to improve the league from time to time,” Waris told reporters.

“I have never played in our local league before, so I would like to contribute when I am close to ending my career.”

Waris also made history in May 2012 by becoming the first player to score five goals in a single game in the Swedish top flight and is currently settling in well and adapting to the Russian League.
