Pascal Gross has highlighted how his Albion boss has him thinking about football a new way – as he aims for another Germany appearance.

The Seagulls midfielder could earn a fifth cap for his country when they play Turkey on Saturday.

He dismissed speculation linking hm with interest from Eintracht Frankfurt when he faced German media at a press conference.

And he was happy to point out how Roberto De Zerbi has helped his game.

Gross said: “In my opinion, Roberto De Zerbi is a high class manager.

“He is bringing us a lot, technically and as a person.

“We are working a lot on our playing philosophy.

“You know what pass you want to play before you even have the ball.

“We are working on every detail every day.”

Gross said Mahmoud Dahoud is part of Albion’s progress, despite the setback of his red card against Sheffield United.

He added: “It was a big disappointment for him but he is doing a good job.

“He is having a good impact on our team.”

Gross signed a new Albion deal earlier this year, taking him until 2025.

Asked about speculation he could head back to Germany, he said: “I don’t know about an interest of Eintracht Frankfurt so that question is answered.

“I watch the Bundesliga very intensely every weekend and have never lost contact with Germany.”
