This week’s Bundesliga interview features Bayer 04 Leverkusen German International Nadiem Amiri.
Since joining Bayer 04 Leverkusen from TSG 1899 Hoffenheim last summer, Nadiem Amiri has become a Germany international and has helped his new club to maintain high hopes in 3 competitions deep into the season.
In this week’s Q&A, we get to find out how the 23-year-old has settled in well at Leverkusen, how he has you developed as a player, and what his hopes for the future of the season are.
Have you settled in well in Leverkusen?
“I think I’ve settled in very well. A lot of players need half a year to settle in. For some, it’s faster. I think in my case I’m one of the faster ones. I’ve integrated well into the club, the team has welcomed me really well and the fans too. I’m very happy. It was definitely the right decision to come to Leverkusen.”
How have you developed as a player?
“You see that in games I make the right decisions, the quick decisions. Perhaps before I would have run into the second player or wanted to play that killer pass there or nutmeg another player. You see now that I’m playing well more consistently. Of course, there are games where it doesn’t work so well. But one of my strengths now is being consistent, keeping at it and then playing better again a week or three days later.”
What are your hopes for the future of the season?“I just hope that it can start again soon and we can play in the Bundesliga. Then, the fans and the spectators have something to do and can sit in front of the TV and watch some Bundesliga. But, of course, I hope that there will be a title this year because we’re doing well in all three competitions and everything is still possible
