Super-Sub Ujah Reserves Special Praise For Teammate After Netting The Winner Vs StuttgartPublished: August 27, 2018
Anthony Ujah had nothing but praise for Mainz teammate, Robin Quaison, after the Nigeria international netted the winner in his side's 1-0 win over Stuttgart in the opening round of the Bundesliga on Sunday afternoon.
Ujah slotted home in the 76th minute, nine minutes after coming off the bench, after receiving a pass from the Swede, his first Bundesliga goal since the 2015-2016 season.
''I think the goal belongs to Quaison because he made life very difficult for Badstudber and he made him very uncomfortable,'' Ujah said post-match.
''At the end he got the ball on his feet and I just needed to show him where, which position I have to be to score and luckily he found me.
''Also, there was a bit of luck with the goal because the defender made a contact but at the end a goal is a goal.''
Following his goal against Stuttgart, the former Werder Bremen and Cologne star has found the net 24 times in 88 games in the German topflight.
