Manu Koné has explained how it felt to make his Borussia Mönchengladbach debut in last week's 1-0 win over Borussia Dortmund.

After a spell on the sidelines, the 20-year-old found himself in the starting line-up for last Saturday's game.

"I was really happy," said Koné in an interview with the club's website.

"I went through a difficult period after arriving at Borussia because I got injured immediately, but I worked hard to return to fitness and to get back playing again," added the 20-year-old, who joined Gladbach from French side Toulouse in the summer.

"When the coach then told me that I was starting, I was just happy. It was a good week and I gave my all in training. The coach saw that I was ready, and I felt that way as well. My moment finally came."

Koné could make his second start in a row when Gladbach face Wolfsburg away from home in the Bundesliga this afternoon.
