The Netherlands international Wout Weghorst is the man scoring the goals to help push his club VfL Wolfsburg towards European qualification for the second year in a row. He has netted 20 goals in all competitions this season – 16 in the Bundesliga, and two apiece in the Europa League and DFB Pokal.
Bundesliga.com caught up with the prolific 27-year-old striker to ask him pertinent questions.
Are you satisfied with the season you have?
Weghorst: “I’m not only looking at the goals, but my play, how important I am for the team, my own development of course and I think I’ve made good steps forward. I just try to develop myself every season and every week again
actually and I’m satisfied with that.”
What do your two daughters mean to you?
“ I get a lot of questions if I’m proud of my skills on the pitch or maybe the 100 goals I would make in my career.
Of course you’re happy with it, but if I see my two girls that’s something I’m really proud of. That’s the most
special thing in life and the most important thing.”
Tell us about your hat-trick against Hoffenheim in the Bundesliga this season.
“Those matches are really special and to make the hat-trick, last year I had two, this season I had one in Hoffenheim and those days, those matches everything
comes together. Those are really nice and really special, it was a great feeling and this season that was absolutely one of the most beautiful games, I think.”
