Hertha BSC coach Pal Dardai lauded Jurgen Ekkelenkamp after the new signing from Ajax came on to score on his debut in Friday's 2-1 win over Greuther Fürth in the Bundesliga.


"An excellent player," Dardai said of Ekkelenkamp, according to AP.

"I already said he was a super player after the first training sessions. We just waited for the right moment. You can't throw him straight in. This was the right moment and he took it well."

Assessing the game, Ekkelenkamp himself said:

“It feels great. I'm a little bit not happy on the bench, not really, but I’m happy to come in and score ... I want to fight for the team and be important with goals."
