“I’m looking forward to learning German”

Summer signing Rafael Santos Borré discusses the international diversity at Eintracht, his fitness and his first impressions at the club.

Rafael Santos Borré on...

…his first few hours in Frankfurt: “I'm really happy to finally be here. I've already had a little look around the city and my first impressions were very positive. I'm sure that my family and I will feel at home here. I was at the training ground for the first time today and I met a few of my new team-mates.”

…his decision to join Eintracht: “One of the main reasons was definitely the people here. Ben Manga [director of professional football] and Markus Krösche [board member for sport] really made a lot of effort to sign me. On top of that, Eintracht Frankfurt are a club steeped in tradition with an unbelievable history, with a beautiful stadium and unique fans. I’m looking forward to this new challenge.”

The squad is very cosmopolitan; there are a lot of nationalities here. Everyone can learn from everyone else and that’s very enriching.

…his playing style: “I’m very adaptable and can play in a lot of tactical formations. I can play on the wing, but also through the middle. I’m very attack-minded and I feel most at home when I’m close to the opposition goal.”

…the team: “The squad is very cosmopolitan; there are a lot of nationalities here. Everyone can learn from everyone else and that’s very enriching. I knew right from the start that I’d feel good here. There are a lot of players who speak Spanish and Portuguese, but I’m looking forward to learning German and talking to some people. The team-mates I’ve spoken to already welcomed me really warmly and we’ve been laughing a lot.”
