Liberia’s right-back Solomon Grimes plying his trade with
Cyprians top flight for Nea Salamis is targeting European
slot at the end of their league season next month.
The club is position 2nd on the log with 40 points collected
so far. With four matches in the championship playoff. They
are five points behind table controller AEK Larnaca that is
holding 45 points.
Nea Salamis defeated league leader AEK Larnaca 2-1 on
Saturday April 7th during an away fixture, the three points
collected away has reduced the opening.
Grimes landed in Cyprus last year after he turned down
offered from Greek club Ethinkos that wanted his to renew
his contract at the end of last season and the Liberian has
capped twenty official league matches this season due to
injury he sustained during the season.
The defender has been a regular leg for Liberia national
team since his departure from local football and has gained
total control of Lone Star right-back. Solomon Grimes won
the position from former Lone Star right-back Fallah Johnson
that was recently released from prison in Thailand
