Ghana striker Abdul Majeed Waris hopes to end his career in his native country.

The 21-year-old hogged the headlines in the West African country nine days ago when he scored his debut goal for the national team in their 4-0 win over Sudan in a 2014 World Cup qualifier.

The Spartak Moscow new recruit was phenomenal as he combined effectively with Asamoah Gyan upfront.

Waris never played for any Ghanaian Premier League side before moving from Right to Dream Academy to Europe in 2008.

The former BK Hacken hitman has revealed his desire to play in the Ghana Premier League before hanging his boots.

“I will try and come to play someday because I have never played in the Ghana Premier League,” Waris told Kumasi-based Angel FM

“It will be very nice to play in the League at some point in my career. I am very young and have a number of great years ahead of me.

“But why not. At some point I will like to come back and play here so I can also contribute something to the local league.

“I have watched few matches in the local league. I think it’s okay but its needs lots of development.

“Some things must be changed but I believed the right time will come for those changes. It’s a gradual process.”

Waris is the first Ghanaian to score five goals in a single top-flight game in Europe.
