Kasim Nuhu excited to hit the ground running as Bundesliga returns

​Ghana international Kasim Nuhu has expressed at his excitement at the Bundesliga resuming and adds it will be strange to play in stadiums without the cheers of fans.

Nuhu is one of five Ghanaian players in the Bundesliga who could be back in action following the league being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“It is very exciting to play again, but one painful thing is that football is always better with fans," he told Juliet Bawuah during a live conversation on TV3‘s Instagram page.

"Playing behind closed doors will affect some of us because we have always played in front of our amazing fans. 

“We are also battling relegation and we need our fans to cheer us up but we also have to understand the circumstances.”

The 24-year-old also added that he is ready to hit the ground running and get more game time after he struggled with his form since arriving from Switzerland.

“It hasn’t been easy for me since I came from Switzerland to Hoffenheim. They bought me at a huge price, which I haven’t been able to repay them with a performance that I like,” he said.

“I got injured during my first few games and was out for 2 months, and after returning, I wasn’t getting enough playing time, so I decided to go on loan at Fortuna Düsseldorf in order to get more playing time, but I got injured again.

“So, coming to Germany has been too hard for me in terms of injuries. It has not allowed me to play to the level I was in Switzerland but as time goes on, I know I will get my rhythm again and make it in the Bundesliga.”
