Adam Kwarasey wins Tippeligaen in Norway

He might not be the only Ghanaian player to win a league title in Europe, but certainly it is an achievable we have to commend. Also, considering the fact that it is his third league title he has won on two different continents, makes him stands out and he has made history.

Black Stars goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey won the Norwegian league title or the Tippeligaen with Rosenberg on Saturday when they defeated Molde 3-1. A draw would have been enough for them, but trailing by a goal came from behind to beat the home side Molde.

The club continue to dominate the Tippeligaen having won 24 league titles, far ahead of the second most successful club Fredrikstad, who have won 9 titles.

Saturday’s league title success becomes the second Adam Kwarasey has won in Norway, winning also with Stromgodset in 2013 before moving to the United States to play in the Major League Soccer where he won another silverware with Portland Timbers in 2015.

Adam Kwarasey can complete a double with Rosenborg as they are currently competing in the Norwegian Cup and face Bodo/Glimt in the semifinals on October 26. A final against his former side Stromgodset is possible as they also play in the other semi-finals against Kongsvinger on 27 October. The final is schedules for 20 November 2016.
