I feel cursed in front of goal

Florian Neuhaus says he's working on his finishing ability as he's determined to become more dangerous in front of goal.

The 22-year-old, who has scored just once in 15 appearances this season, told Sport Bild:

"I feel like I'm cursed in front of goal this season. I get my chances, but the ball just doesn't want to go in. I've never been a player in the mold of Michael Ballack who often moves into the penalty area to take a shot. Nevertheless, I'm working intensively on my finishing in training."

Neuhaus has been compared to Toni Kroos because of his playing style, but the 22-year-old insists he wants to make a name for himself.

"I want to go my own way. But I really like watching Toni Kroos, and I can definitely learn a few things from him. I believe I'm a bit more offensive-minded than Kroos, though."

The central midfielder joined Gladbach from Fortuna Düsseldorf in 2018 and recently extended his contract until 2024.
