In a conversation with “Sky” he emphasized to look with euphoria towards the upcoming tasks at the royal flowers: “I am almost 100 percent. The first months were difficult, I put too much pressure on myself.”

The wingman confessed, with the attitude of expectation after his 6, Five million euro transfer from Fortuna Dusseldorf to Gelsenkirchen initially had its difficulties: “They have spent a lot of money on me and I have met many times in the past season. Then I thought I’d have to work here right away. But that was the wrong approach. This is why the first months were not optimal.”

After three pale start-ups at the start of the season and a subsequent joint injury Raman did not complete a single Bundesliga match for the team of head coach David Wagner in the autumn months of September and October. The 25-year-old is back in the game only since the 3:2 game against FC Augsburg in early November.

Despite the moderate 3:3 before the country break against Raman’s former club Dusseldorf, our goal is Europe in the coming season. If we are on a European Cup by Christmas, that would be a good success,”Raman made it clear.

After eleven league games, the buttons rank equally with archrivals Borussia Dortmund on the seventh table place.
