Former QPR striker Sebastian Polter says he gave up 'a lot of money' after he moved back to Germany.
The 26-year-old left Loftus Road in January this year after scoring four goals in 20 appearances for the Hoops, citing family reasons for his move to Union Berlin.
Polter said it was his dream to play in the Premier League, but said it was his decision to put his family first.
Asked by SportBild what he had lost since he left the Hoops, Polter said: "A lot of money! I put aside my dream of the Premier League: for family reasons, because I wanted to be closer to my children. Many have told me that maybe it wasn’t the smartest decision. But I’m glad to play for Union again."
The striker has done excellently since returning to Germany, scoring seven goals in 15 games last season, while getting seven in 13 so far this season, leading Union Berlin to third in the German second tier.
He may have given up his Premier League dream, but if he continues in this vain he could well be pitting his wits against the likes of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund in the German Bundesliga next term.
