The former TSG 1899 Hoffenheim footballer feels like at home with his new German Bundesliga club and hopes to show good quality football.

A week after leaving German Bundesliga club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim for VfB Stuttgart, Steven Zuber talked to the press for the first time.

“Stuttgart are a big club who obviously shouldn’t be in the position they’re in at the moment. Their current position in the table is of no great importance to me,” he told the club’s official website.

“Being near the top or further down the table doesn’t affect my personal approach. I always look at things on a game-by-game basis and want to win every single one.”

Report: Bayern Munich join the race for Ivan Rakitic

Bayern Munich have reportedly become the latest club to show an interest in signing Barcelona's Ivan Rakitic.

“You start from scratch every matchday, and each time there are three more points up for grabs. The discussions with Michael Reschke and Markus Weinzierl were much more important [in persuading me to join the club]. They totally convinced me,” he explained.

“I’ve already looked at a couple of flats here in Stuttgart and think I’ll move into one of them soon. I think I’ll feel at home quickly.”

“I’m also on the right track in sporting terms after my ankle injury. I was able to participate in parts of training yesterday and hope to be able to train normally again this afternoon,” he added.

“I obviously want to settle in quickly and give my all right away, but I need to wait for permission from the doctors and physios, who need to keep my enthusiasm under control.”
