The 11 capped Black Stars defender, completed 69 competitive games, for TSG, including two games in the Champions League.
Below is Adams Q&A interview after completing his loan move to
Fortuna Dusseldorf on Thursday.
Welcome to Dusseldorf, Kasim! How do you feel after signing with Fortuna?
Thanks a lot! I am very happy to be here and ready to give everything in training and play.
What are your goals for this year?
It will be important from the beginning that we win games and score points to get closer to our goal of relegation bit by bit. We should concentrate fully on this in every game.
What do you think about your new coach Friedhelm Funkel?
I talked to him before I moved and he made me feel good. That was very important to me before I signed. I think he will be able to support me a lot. I’m glad to work with him now.
Do you know Lutz Pfannenstiel from common Hoffenheim times?
Yes, sure! He was part of the squad planning team that brought me from Bern to Hoffenheim. He’s a good guy – and of course, he played a role when it came to getting me to Dusseldorf.
Finally, what were your thoughts when you just looked through the stadium?
It’s great, everything is perfect. Everything makes a good first impression on me. Now it’s time to work hard – and then it’s time to get started!
