Stuttgart midfielder William Kvist determined to make a swift start to the season- Bundesliga news
VfB Stuttgart midfielder William Kvist has stated that he is determined to start the season swiftly and make an impact for his new club. He added that he would definitely welcome competition in the midfield as depth in the squad
is very important for a good side. The player admitted that it will take some time for him to settle and understand the game in Germany.
Kvist joined Die Roten from Danish giants FC Copenhagen in this summer’s transfer window for an undisclosed fee. The player signed a four-year contract with the German side after spending seven years in Denmark.
The defensive midfielder claimed that he will fight to cement his place in the starting line-up as the team has some strong contenders in the central midfield position with the likes of Christian Trasch and Zdravko Kuzmanovic fighting
for a starting place.
The Denmark international added that competition is good for the team as it shows the depth the team has in its squad. He also admitted that he has to excel to the standards of the German game and stated that he has to improve
on his scoring ability.
“At a big club like Stuttgart, we need competition; each position must be occupied twice. I myself need time to integrate myself. I'm not Messi, who plays ten men. I must speak the language, understand the tactics,” he was quoted
as saying in an interview.
Kvist insisted that his team has to improve on the performances from last season and added that a strong start is necessary if the team wants to compete for major trophies in the next campaign. He also remained confident and hopeful
of an impressive term ahead.
“First we have to play better than last season. But here I have a contract for four years and wants to help us improve. Let's see where it goes then,” the Danish concluded.
William Kvist made 264 league appearances in his seven seasons at FC Copenhagen, scoring a total of 13 goals. He was named the Danish Football Player of the Year in 2010.
