Frankfurt: Hugo Ekitike explains his return to form


By: Manu Tournoux

The machine just had to get going. Arriving this winter in Frankfurt, the ex-Parisian Hugo Ekitike is in the process of rebuilding his health in Germany. If his beginnings were difficult, due to lack of physical condition linked to his being put on the shelf in Paris, the 22-year-old striker is in the process of finding his way back to goal. Result: 3 goals in their last 4 matches, including 2 against Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen. In comments reported by BILD this Wednesday, Ekitike explained this comeback.

It’s a question of confidence, I’m building it up. I can play with complete freedom and I have the impression of being protected by the coachesexplains the ex-Parisian, sold definitively since last month by PSG. They introduced me carefully. The fact that coach Dino Toppmöller was a striker himself and speaks French is a plus for me. He showed me videos and explained a lot of things to me. After that I scored goals. He gave me self-confidence and I must be grateful to him (…) Frankfurt was for me a journey into the unknown. But I feel so comfortable here, I wouldn’t have thought that. Eintracht fits perfectly. I also feel loved by the fans.»
