Karlsruher manager Christian Eichner is full of praise for new recruit Stephan Ambrosius following his explosives start to life at the club.
The Ghanaian defender has been in good form since joining from rivals Hamburg on loan in the summer transfer window.
Ambrosius impressed in the victories over Jahn Regensburg and Hansa Rostock, with Karlsruher yet to concede since his arrival.
“Stephan has taken another big step,” said Christian Eichner.
Meanwhile, former Karlsruher and Bayern Munich legend Oliver Kreuzer extoled the qualities of the Ghanaian centre-back.
“Stephan plays with us as a right central defender in a back four. His calmness on the ball is impressive, he’s doing a very good job so far,” he said.
“Stephan plays very aggressively, has a strong defensive header, good timing, defends well going forward. He always wants to dismantle his opponent, can read the game, has a good eye.”
“In his first two appearances he was often correct when opponents passed through the gaps. He was already there when the ball came. I liked that very much. It’s no coincidence that he’s in the extended circle for Ghana’s World Cup squad.”
