Moritz Volz insists Fulham are confident they can repeat their win at Old Trafford earlier in the season when they face Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter finals on Saturday lunchtime.

The German defender knows a tough task awaits Chris Coleman’s men but believes the Whites can take heart from a number of encouraging away displays against the top teams this season. He told the FA’s official website:

“We are confident we can achieve something there. We’re not going there thinking we’re going to get beat and there will certainly be more pressure on them to break us down. It will be a great test. Obviously it is hard to be playing against these players, but it’s a challenge and as a young player you can learn a lot from these experiences.”

Volz is certain he made the right decision to join Fulham on a permanent basis last month after a successful spell on loan from Arsenal.

“I had the choice – to stay and sign on at Arsenal, hoping and still having to wait my turn, or joining Fulham and having a great chance of playing regular first-team football. And I just decided for myself that I would rather be playing week-in, week-out and have the chance of proving myself in the Premiership week-in, week-out which is very important at my age and I don’t think that it would have helped me sitting on the bench.

So in the end the decision was quite easy, even though I spent four really great years at Arsenal and I enjoyed every minute of it. I’ve moved on and I’m happy to be with Fulham.”
