Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Gambian striker Assan Ceesay who played for Swiss Super League side FC Zürich said his aim is to make his country, fans and everyone proud by continuing to score for the country.

Ceesay, fondly called Torres scored his second debut goal for The Gambia in a 1-1 draw against Algeria as he tapped a 49th equalizer after Algerian Badhdad Bounediah gave his side the lead in the 47th minute of the game.

He said it is very important to get results in the game he scored, while hoping to continue scoring goals for the country. “It is always good to have people behind you helping together with the advice from the experienced players in the team; because my duty in the team is to score goals and the goals are coming in which I hope will continue,” he said.

The former FC Lugano and Chiasso player said joining FC Zürich to be in the same team with Pa Modou Jagne will help him both at club level and in national duty, noting that football is all about target and aiming higher because where he was (Lugano) compared to now, Zürich is ahead of FC Lugano.

“This is a very big step for me and I have to continue to work to do what I have to do and to improve myself and help the team. Playing with my brother Pa Modou Jagne is always motivational and I am so happy to be with him,” he revealed.

According to him, Pa Modou Jagne is the one who advised him to move to FC Zürich and he was also the one who advised him to come to Switzerland because there were too many offers for him in other countries but opted to sign for Switzerland because of Nda Jagne.
