Ghana winger, Frank Acheampong has expressed his delight after helping his side Tianjin Teda to retain their Chinese Super League status for next season.

The 25-year-old played a huge role, scoring 17 goals in 26 appearances as Teda escaped relegation on the final day of the season.

"The effort we put in, by God's grace everything went well as expected,” he said.

"We were almost going down but thank God we survived. All I can say is it's so amazing.

"The love they were showing. It got to a point we just needed one goal to make this record and in that game, we lost and even the previous game, I wasn't even the best but I knew what I was playing for and I knew that God’s time is the best.

He added, "Thank God I was able to make it but then I couldn't do it alone, the fans, the playing body, the coaches even when the going went tough we didn't stop."

Acheampong signed for Teda from Belgian side Anderlecht.
