ANTONIO German is determined to take his chance at Brentford and force his way into Uwe Rosler's first team.
The former QPR striker made his return to the Football League as a second-half substitute in Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Leyton Orient, and is likely to be in the squad again for tonight's trip to Bournemouth.
German shot onto the big stage with Rangers as an 18-year-old but lost his way at Loftus Road before being shown the door in August.
The youngster then had a disappointing stint with Conference side Stockport and a brief spell with non-league Bromley before signing a development deal with the Bees.
And the frontman insists he's hell-bent on making the grade at Griffin Park .
He said: “I was doing well at QPR but got ahead of myself a bit and thought I had made it.
“The loan spells didn't go as planned and the manager [Neil Warnock] told me my chances this season would be limited so agreed to cancel my contract on the last day of the transfer window.
“I made a mistake signing for Stockport. I didn't realise you could join a club outside of the window and they called me and said they were interested.
“It's all been a learning experience but I'm delighted to be back in the Football League with Brentford and determined to take my chance.
“I'm just going to work hard in training and development games and hopefully take my chance when I get it.”
