Ghana's Acheampong delighted by remarkable season in China

The Ghana international assesses his season with the Tigers in the Chinese Super League

Ghana international Frank Acheampong is pleased by his exploits in the Chinese Super League this season.

In his second year with Tianjin Teda, the 25-year-old ended the campaign as the club's top scorer with 17 topflight goals, which helped the Tigers place 14th on the league table, just a spot above the relegation zone.

"With the effort we put in and by God's grace, everything went as we expected," Acheampong said, as reported by 442gh.

"I am happy for a remarkable season.

"We were going down but thank God we survived, and I must say that it was an amazing season.

"A very memorable season for us and [for] me [as an individual] as well, and I just have to thank the fans for their support."

Acheampong made 26 league outings - all starts - for Teda in their season.

He joined the club permanently last December following an initial loan deal from Belgian giants Anderlecht.

He made 165 appearances for the Purple and White, scoring 22 times and contributing 21 assists.

He was instrumental as the side lifted the Belgian topflight in 2013, 2014 and 2017.
