Ghana international Nana Opoku Ampomah is itching for his first start of the season for Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundesliga.
The summer signing is back in full contention for playing time after returning from an injury picked up a few days prior to the start of the league season.
He only made his first appearance in the top-flight on Sunday when Dusseldorf hosted Freiburg.
"I am in perfect shape," says Ampomah, as reported by Footballghana.
"I feel ready. If the coach needs me, I want to help.
"The coach is the boss. He decides. Of course you always want to be in the starting eleven as a player.
"If it is not so, you have to stay positive and be ready when you come in."
Ampomah joined Dusseldorf from Belgian top-flight side Waasland-Beveren on a three-year contract.
Last season, the 23-year-old made 30 appearances for Waasland-Beveren, scoring eight times and providing seven assists.
His big Bundesliga break could be on Friday when the Flingeraner play as guests to Hertha Berlin.
