Hoffenheim boss Sebastian Hoeness praised the 26-year-old striker after a 4-0 win over Werder Bremen. Ihlas Bebou scored a goal and an assist in the game against The Green-Whites and was named the best player on the pitch.
He's a player who can really take the spotlight
," Hoeness told reporters and went on to refer to the previous games against Dortmund (2-2) and Molde (3-3), "
in which [Bebou] also played very well, but didn't show the efficiency needed
"He's creating chances, and that's good for a start. But I thought it was amazing how cool he stayed in front of goal against Werder.
"He's a super character, who will continue to work and be enormously important for us as a team."
Bebou has made 27 appearances for Hoffenheim this season, scoring six goals and nine assists.
