Kevin Volland: "A perfect evening for us"

Kevin Volland: "A perfect evening for us"
Obviously happy after qualifying and a hat-trick scored against Red Star (4-1), Kevin Volland spoke to the media after the match.

He scored his first hat-trick with AS Monaco in the victory over Red Star Belgrade (4-1). It was three points that allowed the Rouge et Blanc to finish second in Group H and qualify for the knockout stages of the Europa League. Obviously satisfied after this beautiful evening, Kevin Volland gave his feelings in the mixed zone after the match.

Hello Kevin, what a game! And with qualification as a bonus…

Thanks a lot! It was a very difficult game for us, but I think we played well, especially in the first half. There was a lot of space in midfield, and with our attacking qualities, we were able to be decisive in our finishing.

Finishing second was very important..

Oh yes, very important. We had a lot of pressure on us before the match, but tonight everyone is happy. For us, it’s a perfect evening! From now on, we must concentrate on Toulouse then Marseille to finish the league well before the break.

I am focused on my club, and I'm trying to give the best of myself for Monaco. After my ankle injury, I have to stay in top form now and even improve.

Tell us about your hat trick…

First of all, I want to say that the important thing was the win tonight. Afterwards of course, if I can help the team by scoring or delivering an assist and we win, it’s positive for everyone (smiles).

With these three goals scored, do you have the national team in the back of your mind?

To tell the truth, I am focused on my club, and I’m trying to give the best of myself for Monaco. After my ankle injury, I have to stay in top form now and even improve, and we’ll see what the future holds for me with Germany.

Benoît Badiashile: It was a decisive match, we had to show that we were capable of qualifying. Today, we answered the call and played with style. Winning 4-1 is a very good thing. As Wissam said just beforehand, we must now continue like this!
