The Lorient forward is looking forward to welcoming the Juve star back to the Black Stars

Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris is elated by Kwadwo Asamoah's decision to put an end to his self-imposed sabbatical from the national team.

Due to a series of injuries, the Juventus man has been absent from the Black Stars since playing in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Uganda in 2014.

The playmaker has, however, announced his intention to return to the national fold in the near future.

“For me, I think it’s a fantastic decision [to return],” Waris told Ghanasoccernet.

“Kwadwo Asamoah is someone I admire a lot and he has been a great player since the day I first watched him.

“He is a very good player and the team needs players like that. 

“He is experienced and mature and will put a lot of balance in the team.”

Waris, together with Asamoah, represented Ghana at the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil.
