The Ghana international talks about the Eagles' good showing in Bundesliga this campaign

Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Kevin-Prince Boateng is amazed by their overwhelming performance in the German topflight this season.

After a disappointing 11th finish last season, the Eagles are enjoying a turnaround in fortunes as they currently sit fourth on the Bundesliga log.

Sights set on playing in Europe next season, only one mark separates Niko Kovac's outfit from second-placed Borussia Dortmund and third-positioned Schalke 04 who are tied on points.

“Nobody could have predicted such a transformation, which makes it all the more special," Boateng told the club's official website.

"We’re working hard every day and get on really well as a team - and it’s showing. 

"Everyone respects one another within the squad, and the coach has obviously played a big role as well.”

“We’ve probably secured our top-flight status already, that’s true. We obviously want to stay near the top of the league. 

"We deserve to be in such a strong position because we play good football and with a lot of passion. 

"It’s a wonderful feeling to be so near the top - it’s just reward for all the hard work we’ve put in over the past few weeks.”
