Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashimeru, has expressed excitement after winning his first ever career title with Austrian giants Red Bull Salzburg.
Ashimeru, scored for Red Bull Salzburg in their 5-0 drubbing of Austria Lustenau in the Austrian Cup final on Friday night.
In a match played without spectators at Klagenfurt’s Woerthersee Stadium, the favourites took control of the match with two quickfire goals midway through the first half.
Dominik Szoboszlai put Salzburg ahead from a free kick in the 19th minute and Dominik Stumberger put through his own goal two minutes later as Lustenau, making their second final appearance, fell apart.
Noah Okafor took advantage of poor marking to fire the third in the 53rd minute, Majeed Ashimeru drove in the fourth from the edge of the area in the 65th minute and Sekou Koita completed the rout when a clearance ricocheted off him and into the net.
It is the seventh time that Salzburg have won the competition, all of them in the last nine seasons. The league season is due to restart on Tuesday.
The former WAFA star lasted the entire duration of the match.
”Eureka!!!!!!!….First of all I say Allahamdullahi for yesterday’s victory and the goal scored to help my club FC Red Bull Salzburg win the 2019/2020 Austrian OFB Cup. So happy because it is my first career title. I dedicate this to all the fans who have made me who I am today. Allah continue to make both of us bigger, better and richer,” Ashimeru posted on Facebook.
