Moritz Volz was pleased with his performances after helping Fulham finish ninth in the Premier League this season – and believes there is plenty to build on after his first taste of top flight football.

The German full back was rather modest when describing how he adapted to being a regular in the Premiership for the first time, telling the club’s official website:

“I think I played at a constant level throughout the season. I mean I had some better games and some that weren’t so good, but I think that overall my performances were steady and I think that was what I wanted to do.  wanted to play at a good level but I was always looking to be consistent in my performances and not just have the odd good game, I wanted to try and play a good ball and not to do wonders every once in a while but to have a good season throughout. So I think the management was pleased and the feeling I got from the fans as well has also been positive.”

It was a great move for me because I thought that, with the departure of Steve Finnan, I would have chances to play. I didn’t expect to be in the team straight away and to be playing week-in week-out but it worked out well and I have to say that I am very pleased with the way the season went.”

The youngster, who might be in with an outside chance of featuring for Germany at this summer’s European Championships after injuries to their leading full backs, is already looking forward to the next campaign.

“Hopefully everyone gets a good rest over the summer to come back healthy for pre-season. Hopefully then we’ll have a good pre-season and then we’ll push on and first of all we’ll be looking to get the points to keep us clear from relegation but I think in the back of our heads we’ll want to better our league position next season and continue improving.”
