Schalke O4 Sporting Director Horst Heldt has applauded the quality of Kevin-Prince Boateng.
The Ghanaian international scored the only goal of the match as Schalke beat Mainz last weekend.
The 25-year-old electrified the crowd with sublime performances which has earned the praise of his sporting director.
“We have noticed from the first training that he is an absolute quality player,” Heldt said of Boateng.
“The whole team worked well. But Boateng was the centre. He brings himself, has no airs and graces.”
“We are now looking at the Uefa Champions League game against Steaua Bucharesti on Wednesday and I know he will make a big impact.”
The former AC Milan enforcer joined the German outfit on the final day of the summer transfer-window.
