Geremi, at Boro on a year's loan from Real Madrid, missed out on his Spanish side's clash against rivals Barcelona - one of the most historically bitter clashes in world football.
However, after playing a starring role in Boro's 3-2 win against Manchester City, the Cameroonian admits he is delighted with the way his switch has turned out.
"When I came to Middlesbrough, I did not think things would go this well for me or the team," said Geremi.
"The main reason I came here was to play and enjoy my football again.
"Last year I was not playing and that is why I thought about a move to The Premiership.
"I have settled in very well and I'm not thinking about Madrid.
"I believe Steve [McClaren] is a great coach and we are a big team because of him."
