Garra Dembele, Bulgarian Levski's former prolific striker, has started his career at German Freiburg excellently, scoring in his first match with his new teammates.

Dembele scored against the amateur Balingen in a friendly game scheduled during Freiburg's pre-season program. The match was easily won with 4:1 by Freiburg.

On Monday, it was reported that Dembele might return to his previous club due to a heavy muscle injury, but the striker has already recovered.

Even though Dembele is apparently in top form, he is expected to stay on the bench for the most of the upcoming season, as Freiburg's best forward, Pappis Cisse, has not been sold as previously expected.

The 25-year-old Garra Dembele was a hit in the Bulgarian football championship after Levski acquired him from Lokomotiv Plovdiv. He scored 26 goals in 24 matches in the Bulgarian championship, 8 goals in 12 Europa League matches, and 2 goals in the Bulgarian Cup tournament.

Freiburg snapped up Dembele in exchange for EUR 2.3 M, which made the French-Malian forward the German club's most expensive purchase ever.
