Eintracht Frankfurt’s new Sturmestar Bas Dost considers after the strong performance against Bayer Leverkusen (3:0) the new qualification for the European competition possible and even enjoys with the Champions League.
“Four years ago, the class content was expected, with our current cadre, the Europa League must once again be a goal. If all goes well, I do not want to exclude t hat we can play for square 4″, says the Dutch, who had changed to the main metropolis in the summer, in a conversation with the”kicker”.
The 30-year-old has found himself directly marvellous at the entry, met three times already in his five previous league goals for the SGE.
The fact that Dost changed to Frankfurt in the summer transfer phase stood on the edge for a long time. In particular, he was convinced by the conversation with the Frankfurt Sports Board Fredi Bobic, the Dutchman said. This had assured him that Frankfurt coach Adi Hutter is definitely planning with a classic midstorm.
“He wants a guy who is active in the sixteen. You can’t do that with a six-foot man. That’s why it was so important that Bobic explained the game to me, because that’s how I felt: he needs someone like me. And I need a conversation like this”, Dost reported on the good first impressions with the SGE leaders.
For a long time it was not possible to think of Lisbon’s departure
That the Dutch ex-national player would leave his previous club Sporting and the Portuguese capital Lisbon at all, Dost himself did not think for a long time that: “After two years in Lisbon, my friend and I agreed: we will stay here forever. It was amazing, I shot gates, I loved the city, the weather, everything!” he reported.
A hooligan attack on the sports training center in May 2018 then “changed everything”. A farewell was conceivable again, and this summer the endeavor then struck. Dost has signed a working paper with the Frankfurters up to 2022.
