The Eagles' elder statesman may humbly suggest he is merely 'normal', but with a goalscoring record that any top striker might envy - and one which he has confirmed year on year - not many will be falling for that modesty.
In an interview midway through the 2014/15 campaign, Meier revealed some of his secrets, talking about an emotional decade with the Eagles while also touching on his partnership with Haris Seferovic, which appears to be a match made in heaven.
Question: You score most of your goals with your instep. Are you unable to shoot with your laces?
Meier: I can but even when I was a kid I'd always practice shooting with my instep and I’m more accurate that way. I still practice it every day and I think I’m pretty good at it.
Question: Your strike partner has settled in very well at Frankfurt. What is it that makes you two dovetail so well together?
Meier: We’ve got a good understanding and are getting to know each other better with each passing week. We play well together.
Question: How would you sum up your partnership?
Meier: Well, I’m the normal one and he’s the crazy one [laughs].
Question: How should we interpret that?
Meier: Haris is quite a bit younger than I am [at 22] and he’s from a different generation of players. You can notice that in the changing room but also out on the pitch. I do normal things and maybe score normal goals, whereas Haris does other things. You only need to look at goal he scored against Dortmund - he sensed something and just kept on running when [Matthias] Ginter’s header back to his own goalkeeper didn’t work out as planned. And against Bremen he scored while lying down. He also posts things like mad on social media [...] he’s certainly different to me.
Question: The Frankfurt fans call you a ‘football god’. What does that mean to you?
Meier: I’m delighted about it because it’s a very special form of recognition.
Question: That hasn’t always been the case for you in your ten years at Frankfurt. At the start you were even whistled sometimes, even though you’ve always been a regular goalscorer. How can you explain such a change in perception?
Meier: Strangely enough it happened when we got relegated. In my opinion it was us players who got the club into trouble in 2011 and I thought it was our responsibility to make amends. That’s why I stayed and that persuaded fans that I’m Frankfurt through and through. Ever since then the relationship between the fans and me has improved.
Question: You’ve always been a favourite within the club itself, and you extended your contract for another three years last May. Will you finish your career here?
Meier: I might well do. I really like it in Frankfurt and I feel at home in the city and at the club. And I’ve never forgotten that the chairman Heribert Bruchhagen stood by me through difficult periods.
Question: Things didn't go so well for you at the start of the season and you were even on the bench a lot. What happened there?
Meier: The coach thought I wasn’t 100 per cent fit. Obviously I saw things differently but I did have a couple of knee complaints at the very start of the season. Now everything’s good though. I’m playing and the coach is happy with me.
