The 22-year-old Brazilian has impressed in the Bundesliga so far this season, scoring 11 times in 21 appearances as his side occupy 10th in the table.

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.
