I wrote about Daniel Opare during the pre-season. Well, his fortunes have changed for the better in FC Augsburg.

Last Saturday, Opare played his first match in a competitive tournament since May 2016 for Augsburg. And they beat Cologne 3-0.

During the pre-season and at the beginning of the 2017/2018 season Bundesliga, Opare was already written off as a player who failed to integrate in Augsburg. He had problems with his favorite position that was held by the captain of the team, Paul Verhaegh.

His circumstances changed when Paul Verhaegh left Augsburg for Wolfsburg, and in the match against Cologne, Raphael Framberger, could not play because he had a knee problem.Suddenly Opare became the only available choice against Cologne.

Opare grabbed the chance and in the match against Cologne, he was attentive in duels and reduced his mistakes to the minimum. The sports director, Stefan Reuter described his development ” he has worked on himself to reduce his carelessness, and risky action in defense. He left a good impression from the first day of training and he is very positive person.”

After waiting on the sidelines for so long, Opare has finally arrived in Augsburg.
