Rondon delighted to get off the mark

30 August 2015

Striker was matchwinner against Stoke

SALOMON Rondon has expressed his delight after notching his first goal in West Bromwich Albion colours.

The record-signing bagged the winner in first-half injury time at the Britannia Stadium, expertly heading home Rickie Lambert’s cross.

The former Zenit star could have added a second shortly after the break, but this time his headed effort landed on top of the net instead of in the back of it.

The Venezuela international was understandably thrilled to open his account for the Baggies and vowed to keep working hard.

“I am very happy to score my first goal for Albion,” said Rondon.

“It was a big goal because it gave us the victory and our first three points of the season.

“Stoke are a difficult team so to beat them is pleasing.

“I am settling in well, England is very good.

“The Premier League is very tough so I know I have to work hard.

“I am pleased to score my first goal and hopefully I can score many more.”
