Jonas Wind has hit the ground running at VfL Wolfsburg, starting all seven games since his January switch from Danish Superliga outfit FC Copenhagen.

The 23-year-old Danish international, who has found the net two times so far, couldn't have imagined a better start to life in Germany.

"I'm a little surprised at how fast things have gone. Of course I made the move to play football, but I didn't see it coming that I would be starting every game," he is quoted as saying by Danish news agency Ritzau.

"I had imagined getting a few substitute appearances and then playing my way into the starting line-up that way. It has gone quickly and beyond all expectations, and I can't complain about that. I couldn't have hoped to get off to a better start.

"When you keep starting, you're doing something right, and we have done well as a team."

Even though Wind has adapted quickly to his new surroundings, he can feel that the Bundesliga is a step up.

"The biggest difference - without belittling FC Copenhagen - has been the quality of the squad and the intensity in training. It's a step up, and of course it should be when you go from the Superliga to the Bundesliga. There is great quality all around," admitted the striker.
