Ghana midfielder Yussif Raman Chibsah has expressed his delight at scoring the only goal as Benevento Calcio defeated Spezia 1-0 in the Italian Serie B on Saturday.
The 23-year-old connected Amato Ciciretti’s pass in the 84th minute to score his second goal of the season, which ended the Witches’ four-game winless run. They have moved three places up to sixth on the log with 18 points.
“I barely touched the ball but if they award me with the goal I will be very happy,” Chibsah told Benevento TV.
“We were very focused in the beginning. We made some mistakes too but in the end we had all the three points. We are a very strong side. We should always think positive and work because hard work always pays in the end. The win makes me excited because it has been very long since we recorded one.
“The defeat in Trapani last week served as a lesson to us. During the week, we gave one hundred per cent seriousness at training and the coach chose the best to play the game against Spezia which we won. Congratulations to all the players for their efforts in the win,” he added.
Chibsah joined Benevento in a season-long loan from Sassuolo. Last season, he played in the Italian Serie A with Frosinone, who were eventually relegated.
On the international stage, Chibsah has represented Ghana in two games, after making his debut in the 2-2 draw with Turkey in 2013 when he replaced Rabiu Mohammed.
