After playing four games and scoring one goal since he started playing for Arminia Bielefeld in Germany this season, Zambian striker Chris Katongo is confident of success in the Bundesliga.
Katongo, signed by Arminia Bielefeld from Brondby IF at the start of the new season, is among the African contingent that coach Michael Frontzek is looking to changing the team’s fortune after a terrible start to the current league campaign.
“I would say, so far so good, and I’m enjoying myself in Germany,” Katongo told KickOff.com.
“The coach has been using me more as an attacking midfielder than a striker, but still I don’t have any problem with that as I have played many positions in my career.”
Katongo, who has taken his wife and one-year-old son, Chris Junior, to Germany, is also full of praise for his South African teammates Siyabonga Nkosi and Rowen Fernandez, who have made things easier for him to settle in well in Germany.
“Both Rowen and Siyabonga are like brothers to me. They came here before me and they took time off to show me around. They are fantastic guys and I have since developed great friendships with both of them.”
