Ghana defender Samuel Inkoom claims he is now in the good books of FC Dnipro coach Juande Ramos after being put on ice for indiscipline.
The right-back paid the fine for defying his Ukrainian side to aid the national Under-23 team play a crucial All Africa Games qualifier last month.
The final eliminator, played on a non-Fifa date, coincided with Dnirpo's pre-season start.
The 20-year-old took a pay cut and helped Ghana's Olympic team beat Nigeria's Dream Team V 2-0 to qualify.
But that came at a cost as he was benched for four league matches.
Inkoom returned to the team's line-up first as a second half substitute in their last league match and then played full throttle in their Uefa Europa League tie against Fulham.
The former FC Basle player says things are beginning to fall in place now.
"I had a little problem with the coach due to me coming down to play for the national team (Meteors) on a non Fifa date," he told GHANAsoccernet.com
"That accounted for me being on the bench early in the season but thankfully everything is sorted out and as you know, I have started playing regular football.
"I feel very comfortable at Dnipro and the fans really love me and therefore I am bent on putting out my best for the club this season."
Inkoom moved to FC Dnipro in January from Swiss side Basel in a US$ 10 million dollar move.
