Reception

His former coach in West Bromwich who once criticized his performances, later confessed that: "I'm amazed. We had him at West Brom, we took him on loan and we could never get him fit. He even got taken off in an Under-21 game and he went back to Arsenal and they sold him on ... To have him at West Brom and seeing him do what he's done is absolutely amazing."

Also, Werder Bremen coach Alexander Nouri described him as: He is lightning quick, a clinical finisher, but he puts a lot of work now into his defense – that was something he was missing before," then he added, "Now he's making these deep runs back to his own box defending. He's capable of doing this work while on the other hand making deep runs in attack. Before he wasn't able to do it because of a lack of strength physically. After a long period with no injuries, he was able to build up that strength – now he's a complete player. He just needs to prove this over a longer period to become a top international star."
