Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashimeru lifted his maiden career title after helping Red Bull Salzburg thump Austria Lustenau 5-0 to win the 2019/20 Austria OFB Cup on Friday.

Ashimeru joined the Austrian giants from Ghana Premier League outfit WAFA SC in 2017.

The 22-year-old was however shipped on loan to Austria Lustenau and Wolfsburger AC before landing at Swiss side St. Gallen to continue his development.

Ashimeru said he was delighted to score in Red Bull Salzburg’s ‘big win’ against Austria Lestaneau in the OFB Cup.

The Bundesliga side thrashed the lower division side 5-0 to win the the Austrian Cup on Friday night as football returned following an enforced break by COVID-19.

“Thanks to you all for the love and support. Big win and happy to score,” he posted on Twitter after the game.

The goal will be a memorable one for the 22-year-old who has won his first career silverware.

The match in Klagenfurt which was played behind closed doors because of the coronavirus pandemic produced an exciting possession-based football.
