The Swiss international footballer was able to score against Eintracht to help his team tie 1-1 on Sunday.
Defensive midfielder Denis Zakaria helped his team Borussia Monchengladbach rescue one point away from Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga.
The game played yesterday ended up 1-1 thanks to a goal by the Swiss international.
“We played very well. We scored very late on but it was important that we drew level,” he told the club’s official website.
“We are pleased to secure a point and always believed that we could score to get back in the match.”
“It was a top quality match,” he continued.
“Two very strong Bundesliga sides faced each other. It was great to secure points in such a high-quality match away from home.”
Zakaria joined Borussia in the summer of 2017 after being bought from Young Boys in his native Switzerland.
The 22-year-old has appeared in 47 occasions for his German club, scoring three goals.
“I can easily put chances like that first half opportunity to the back of mind and return to my usual game,” he explained.
“The match continued and it was important for me to be alert mentally. You always have to be ready for whatever the match can throw at you.”
“I was ready in the closing stages of the match to draw us level,” he said.
“Initially, it was quite difficult for me to adapt to the new position and become comfortable. It was new for me to cover more ground on the pitch.”
“However, I’ve learned how to play in that position and I now feel much more comfortable in that position. Even still, I will continue to grow in that position,” Zakaria concluded.
