Ghana international Ishmael Yartey is delighted with his match-winning goal for KPV Kokkola in the Finnish top-flight league on Sunday.
The 29-year-old geared in with electrifying pace to force home the match winner on the 77th minute after the HJK goalkeeper took his eyes off the ball.
Apart from his 77th minute strike for Kokkola at the Kokkolan Stadium the former Benfica and Ghana U17 winger displayed overwhelming performance with honey-dripped passes and great telepathic play with his team-mates.
He tells Ghana Sports he is excited about his recent form for KPV.
“This is a massive 3 points for the team and I’m very happy for this victory. Its a big plus for our objectives and [I’m grateful] I scored again today,” he told Ghanasportsonline.com.
Yartey has scored THREE goals in four matches and picked TWO Most Valuable Player awards from the two games.
The former Sochaux Montbelliard man says his recent form means a lot to him.
“It means a lot to me because I always work hard to help my team. My job is to assist my teammates and score goals so [I’m] very happy and grateful that I have been scoring,” he added.
Yartey arrived in the Finnish top-flight league from Switzerland where he featured for FC Servette, FC Sion and FC Stade Nyonnais.
