Boakye-Yiadom joins Belgrade to celebrate UCL victory over Salzburg

Ghana forward Richmond Boakye-Yiadom joined his former Red Star Belgrade teammates in Austria to celebrate after reaching the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League Group stage.

The Serbian, who won the 1991 European Cup, booked their place in the group stage of Europe's elite club after playing 2-2 against Austrian giants Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday.

After drawing 0-0 in the first-leg, Manus Dabbur's double looked to have sent Salzburg into the group stages for the first time in 11 years.

The Jiangsu Sunning hitman took to his social media page to share a photo on his visit to his former teammates.

He captioned the post; “Congratulations guys have always proved to be warriors of victory and you made it ...I’m happy to congratulate you guys from my heart one love ? guys ...and keep the fire ???? burning @crvenazvezdafk”

Red Star have been drawn in Group C, believed to be the group of death having been paired with last season’s finalist Liverpool, PSG and Napoli.
