Naohiro Takahara believes he may finally have found the club of his dreams in Eintracht Frankfurt.
The Japanese international produced a stirring performance for his new club at the weekend, scoring a goal in the 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen.
Before his switch to Eintracht over the summer, the 27-year-old spent three forgettable seasons at Bundesliga rivals Hamburg where he struggled to hold down a regular first-team spot.
Now he believes the style of play at his new employers will bring out the best of him and make him a permanent fixture in the side.
"Despite just arriving here I have a good understanding with the players," said Takahara.
"The players here pass me the ball at the right times. That helps me to show what I am capable of.
"I have finally found a team where I can fit in."
