Persianfootball.com – LAS PALMAS, Following his dream debut in Spanish Cup, Masoud Shojaei also had a fantastic maiden appearance in the league, scoring the sole goal of the day in minute 36 in Las Palmas’ win over Real Jaen on Sunday evening.
It was the first win of the season in Segunda Division for Shojaei’s new team after a disappointing start to the season with three draws and one loss before the former Osasuna man joined the team.
Like in the 3-1 Cup victory, Shojaei played the full 90 minutes on the wing.
“I congratulate the fans who supported us so much, we got three important points”, Shojaei told reporters after the match.
“The love people have given me in this first game truely surprised me. I tried to fight for the team and for the people.
“We have 26 players with great quality and they are all very important as we have a great competition and therefore pressure to play better.”
It was a disappointing weekend for the rest of Iran foreign legion though.
Daniel Davari and Alireza Jahanbakhsh remained on the bench in their teams’ league draws.
Ashkan Dejagah, Sardar Azmoun and Reza Ghoochannejhad all didn’t even make the bench as Fulham and Rubin drew whereas Standard stormed to another victory.
