Brighton midfielder Pascal Gross is enjoying his football in the Premier League.
Gross has been a revelation for the Seagulls after his summer arrival from Ingolstadt.
He told the BILD: "I notice that the players are looking for me and fully accept my role.
"From experts and media, I also experience a much higher appreciation than was the case in Germany."
Gross' form has led to talk of a big club move back to the Bundesliga next year.
