The Eintracht Frankfurt footballer has talked with honesty how his worst times have made him a better player.

Argentinean center-back David Abraham is enjoying his time with German Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 32-year-old has played most of his career in Europe, after debuting for Independiente back in 2005.

“I once scored a scissor kick for FC Basel in Switzerland,” he told the club’s official website.

“As a center-back, that obviously doesn’t happen often.”

He also talked about his greatest win: “The 2018 cup final against Bayern Munich.”

But what would be a successful player without painful defeats that made him better?

“In 2012, I played for FC Basel against Bayern in Munich in the Champions League round of 16 and we lost 7-0,” he said.

“That was really tough.”

“I have mixed feelings about that,” he said about his debut.

“I scored an own goal after five minutes but after that, I had a good game.”

Abraham explained who has been the most difficult footballer he has ever faced: “Leroy Sané.”

“His pace and dribbling are unbelievable.”

“I always just wanted to play football, be it at an amateur level or as a professional,” he added.

“Nothing else interested me.”
