West Brom's Zoltan Gera insists that he can get better after an impressive year.West Brom star Zoltan Gera insists that he can be even better after an impressive debut season in The Premiership.
The Hungarian international endeared himself to The Baggies faithful with a series of influential displays, as boss Bryan Robson steered his side to the most unlikely of Premiership survivals after they were bottom at Christmas.
Speaking to skysports.com, Gera insisted that next season could prove to be even more successful for him after he overcame an adjustment period to star in West Brom's recovery campaign.
"When I came to England I knew that this was the biggest chance of my life and I knew the reasons and goals why I had chosen this country," Gera told skysports.com.
"My former manager Gary Megson told me that I wouldn't play for 2-3 months because of - for example - the language problems but he calmed me down that my time would come soon.
"I'm happy that I was able to adapt so fast but if I look back to the last months I must say I didn't show everything that I am capable of, next year I will be much better."
Gera revealed that he was very impressed with the West Brom fans and had a special place in his heart for Old Trafford after The Baggies secured a famous 1-1 win against Manchester United on their home soil in May.
The star was speaking at a press conference where he was revealed as one of the faces of Pepsi alongside such stars as Ronaldinho and David Beckham, and also insisted that the hand injury sustained against Portsmouth on the last day of the season would not keep him out of Hungary's upcoming games.
"When we lose I feel awful, I liked most Old Trafford but not its atmosphere," Gera continued.
"The best were our home games, I was shocked to hear my name shouted by the fans with only one match behind my back, I also like Anfield.
"I feel better now and it's more than likely that I will play against France and Iceland."
