Survival Huge Weight Off Volz's Shoulders

Survival Huge Weight Off Volz's Shoulders

Fulham staying up was a huge weight of Moritz Volz's shoulders but in this revealing diary he speaks of the pressures of having to watch a relegation battle from the sidelines.

'As with the Birmingham game, going one up against Portsmouth made me even more anxious because we had even more to lose then. The old heartbeat was going through the roof and that last quarter of an hour seemed to take an eternity. Every time Portsmouth got even near our box my heart was in my mouth - and by this point I was definitely of the opinion that watching this kind of game was much harder than actually playing in it!

'Overall, I`m delighted that we survived but I`m also glad this season`s finally over. I`ve never tried to hide away from the situation we`ve been in and I`ve always been realistic enough to know it was going to be an uphill struggle. But looking at the games we had left a few weeks ago, I always felt we still had a chance, provided the teams around us kept us in it.'
