After his summer move from St. Pauli to the top flight, Daniel-Kofi Kyereh has finally found his place in the Freiburg squad and is loving life in the Black Forest.

When Roland Sallai went down with a serious eye injury on Matchday 5, Christian Streich desperately needed a new no. 10 to quickly step in. Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, who was actually splitting time between the first team and Freiburg's reserves at the time, has taken over the position ever since.

Speaking with 'kicker', Kyereh stated that, "I am very satisfied with my development. That was what I set out to do: to get more playing time. I am glad and grateful that I am given the chance. It's definitely fantastic. I wake up every morning and am happy that I am where I am."

Streich is known to be cautious when bringing summer signings into the team, but Kyereh has stamped his place in the starting eleven and even scored his first goal against Mainz this past weekend. The 26-year-old Ghana international is now ahead of Woo-yeong Jeong on the depth chart, as his slick play is exactly the creativity Freiburg were craving.

Kyereh says fans will soon see his special celebration: "The somersault is definitely still there." All he has to do is, "recharge the battery."
