Despite pulling out of his first training session after taking a knock in a tackle with Niki Zimling, Okazaki said that he is enjoying being with the team.
"I'm really looking forward to my time here and training under [coach] Thomas Tuchel and with this team," Bundesliga.com quotes Okazaki as saying.
"The bruise isn't bad either. It's just what happens in the Bundesliga."
Okazaki played for Stuttgart for two years and scored 10 league goals during his time at the club.
