What did it feel like to score your first Bundesliga goal in the 2-0 away win against Union Berlin?

"It was obviously an indescribable feeling. It was also an important goal for the team in an amazing setting. It was an amazing feeling."

Do you have a role model?

"My role model has always been Lionel Messi. I've also really enjoyed watching Kevin de Bruyne for a while now."

Which members of the team do you spend time with off the pitch too?

"In my private life I spend lots and lots of time with my Austrian team-mates Stefan Posch, Florian Grillitsch and Robert Žulj."

How does it feel to wear the shirt number 14, previously worn by Sandro Wagner?

"That's obviously a nice coincidence. I'd be delighted if I got anywhere near scoring as many goals for TSG as he did. But that was not the reason why I chose to wear that number on my shirt."

What are your favourite series?
