It hasn’t sunk in I’ve scored a Premier League goal yet - Semenyo

Published on: 01 May 2023

Ghanaian forward Antoine Semenyo says it hasn't sunk in that he scored his first goal in the English Premier League.

The 23-year-old bagged his first goal for Bournemouth in their 4-1 win over Leeds United on Sunday in his 10th game, coming off the bench in most of those games.

Speaking to the club's media team after the game, the Black Stars attacker didn't hide his excitement, revealing that it now feels surreal that he is playing in the Premier League.

"It feels real. It hasn't sunk in yet. I am happy the ball went in. I just hit it as hard as I can. I am happy," Semenyo said.

"We’ve been planning for weeks for a celebration, and we've finally been on the pitch together to do it. It’s even better."

Antoine Semenyo signed for AFC Bournemouth in the January transfer window from Bristol City after an impressive run in the English Championship.

He has struggled for game time, starting only two games, and will hope the goal will be the beginning of good things to come.
