Berlin, Sep 2, IRNA -- Hamburger SV coach Kurt Jara here Monday called the performance of his Iranian star forward Mehdi Mahdavikia in his team's 6-0 elimination cup rout over amateur club FC Schoenberg  "pleasing", indicating his return to the starting line-up, the bi-weekly kicker sports magazine reported.
"Considering that this was his first match (since his back surgery), his performance was pleasing as he was looking for the one-on-one situation. He has also caught up with the team," said  Jara.
Meanwhile the former Pirouzi striker who did not play for Hamburg's pro-team since February following a complicated disc surgery, expressed "a great feeling to be able to play football again after this awful period".
The 25-year-old Mahdavikia came into Saturday's match in the 50th minute and proved that he was a strong alternative to Hamburg's other right winger Richard Kitzbichler.
