Series breaker Adli makes Bayer Leverkusen cheer
His victory and premier torn devoted Amine DLI to his best friend in the home. I always do this sign, explained the Leverkusen striker from France and shaped with his fingers a z: Because it is the first letter of his name Zachary.
With his winner to the 1-0 against the VFL Bochum DLI became the match winner of Bayer 04 and ended the series of four league games without victory through his first Bundesliga at all. DLI also showed what is due to a risky time in due times of the Rhine countries: flexibility.
The 21-year-old had to rise against the newcomer from the Ruhr area again in an actual unfamiliar role as a center-for-the-term. We have many injuries, you have to adapt, said DLI. Speed and one-counter-one are actually among his great strengths. On Saturday he met completely untypically. That was like in the textbook, said Leverkusens Managing Director Audi Roller recognizing. With these fast players in front you do not believe that you can head like that.
DLI itself hopes for a good omen from the gate. Even with the French second division FC Toulouse, from which he was changed to Bayer 04 in the summer, he achieved his first goal as a professional with his head. I hope thats good for the future, he said now.
In this, however, DLI will probably get greater competition in the team soon. The comebacks of top scorer Patrick Schick, Lucas Alaric or Karim Bellcrank would give way coach Gerardo Sloane significantly more design options in Leverkusen attack. A few are very close. But there is still a little something left or another, Roller said to the possible return of last fancy Bayer players.
Look forward, continue to give gas
Already against Bochum again was Jung star Florian With. The national player showed directly, as important he is for the Leverkusen game. The 18-year-old was practically involved in any Bayer attack, herself had several good chances and was beside DLI the key players in the West duel.
He is brutally important, Teammollege Jonathan TAH celebrated and praised Withs playful qualities. But he too should not be satisfied with it, but we all should look what we can do better. Look forward, give away gas.
The next opportunity for Leverkusen already on Thursday. Then the Herself in the Europa League against Celtic Glasgow can make the move to the second round. DLI is looking forward to the international highlight, but also knows that he still has increased potential. I have to continue to adapt, continue working, he said. And I hope I have now stability in my performance with the team. Should the hope fulfill, you will see the cheers with Z in the future even more often.
