Ghana forward Latif Blessing has been hailed by his teammates at Sporting Kansas City not only for his contribution but his goal celebration.
Blessing, who joined the MLS side on a two-year deal with the option of extending for a further year from Ghana Premier League outfit Liberty Professionals following his exploits in the side last term, where he bagged in 17 goals to win the league’s top scorers crown.
The 20-year-old is gradually cutting a niche for himself in the league after initially struggling to find his feet, where he was loaned out to their feeder club Swope Park Rangers.
Since returning to club’s fold, Blessing has bagged three goals in fifteen appearances to help the Kansas-based side to the summit of the Western Conference table, however, not his performances that have caught the eye of his teammates but his goal celebration.
Ahead of Sporting Kansas City US Open semi-final clash against San Jose Earthquakes tonight at the Children’s Mercy Park, the club took to twitter and used one of Blessing’s goal celebration videos to urge their teeming supporters to troop the stadium.
Below is one of his numerous goal celebrations:
