Newly signed Suva utility Mohammed Ramzan Khan is aiming to continue scoring goals for the Digicel Premier League champions.
The 21-year-old former Fiji U17, Fiji U20 rep scored the lone goal against his former district Rewa in Round 1.
Speaking to FijiLive, Khan said he was eager to score for his new team and scoring against his former teammates was more special.
“When we were in the changing room, the coach told us to play as a team and communicate a lot. We settled down really fast and when I got the opportunity I made sure that the ball finds the back of the net.”
“We started off very well and good communication allowed us to stay focused and we made very little mistakes from thereon.”
“I didn’t know that I’ll score the goal for Suva and it has actually surprised me but I must say this is a good surprise and just the beginning.”
“Again we wanted to score more goals but couldn’t find the right opportunity so it’s a good start of the season with the three points.”
The Saweni, Lautoka native said mixing around with his new teammates was tough at first but in a week he was able to win hearts.
“It was a bit of struggle to mix around with the Suva boys at first and I took things slowly and in no time I got around well with them. The combination with the boys was really good because most of them are my seniors and they always look out from me since I’m a new inclusion.”
Khan who is a student at the University of the South Pacific pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources said he is determined to bring more improvement to his game and he has even set his sights on winning the DPL golden boot award this season.
“I know it will be very challenging as a midfielder to win the golden boot award but this is a challenge I have put on myself. I want to compete with myself and give my 100 percent so that I score more stunning goals and win the award.”
