‘I Have Set a 12-Goal La Liga Target,’ Says Ghana Striker Boakye-Yiadom

The on-loan Juventus forward is hoping to improve on his performance last season with a target of 12 goals for Elche. Ghana striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom is hoping to bang in a minimum of 12 goals on his debut season in the Spanish La Liga. The player, who was a hit whiles on loan at Sassuolo last season, has so far scored two goals for Elche in four appearances. The on loan Juventus player has told Accra-based Joy FM he would be able to realise his target by dint of hard work. “I have set a target of scoring 12 goals in my first season of playing in a highly competitive league like the Spanish La Liga, so I’m working towards achieving that target,” Boakye-Yiadom said. “I was so happy to have scored against Real Madrid in our 2-1 defeat, the response from my colleagues and the fans at the stadium was great.” He added: “It has not been easy playing in the La Liga but I believe I can hit the mark.”
