The right footed winger has revealed the meaning behind his latest goal celebration after opening his goal scoring account in the German Bundesliga II on Sunday.


Ghanaian attacker Patrick Twumasi registered his first-ever brace for Hannover 96 in their 4-0 resounding victory over SV Sandhausen at the HDI Arena.

The 26-year-old who ended his goal drought since joining the Red and Black lads in summer, emotions was on full display on Sunday afternoon celebrated wildly with several push-ups. 
Twumasi said in an interview with the club's official after the game that the push-up celebration was a message to those who have criticised his form since joining Hannover 96 from Deportivo Alaves during the summer transfer window.
"There are always ups and downs in life. But you must never give up," Twumasi told the club's official website.
"Sometimes you have to "push" to get back upstairs. You have to keep working hard - and then the right thing will happen at the right time,"
"I also read reviews of myself on the internet. But I tried to get motivation from that. I kept working - and that's why I celebrated this goal."
The Ghanaian international has made eleven game outings for Hannover 96, scoring two goals and providing an assist so far in his debut season at the club.
Twumasi also expressed his gratitude to the fans of Hannover 96 for their unflinching support since his arrival at the club despite the lack of goals before his brace against SV Sandhausen in today's clash.
"Yes, I'm here for Hannover 96. And I really enjoy being here. I love our team - it's a great team. It's clear: at the beginning, things certainly didn't go smoothly, it took a while." He said
"But I've always tried to give everything and always arrive better. We took this picture to show the fans that we love being here and that we appreciate the fact that I can play for 96."
"I also have to say that I think it's a shame that I haven't seen our stadium when it's really full. I really miss the fans at the games."
Twumasi has a contract which keeps him at Hannover 96 until summer 2023.
