Hwang "happy and proud" to be part of the pack

With a first goal and Wolves start in the bank, Hee Chan Hwang is enjoying life in the West Midlands and is set on giving supporters something to enjoy on the pitch.

The South Korean is now a month into his time as part of the pack and was lively against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening, scoring in the shootout, and is now fully focused on Southampton. Hwang scored on his first Premier League outing at Watford and returns south on Sunday, hoping to be given another opportunity to impress, but more importantly, win points for his new club.

On getting off the mark early

“First of all, it was an honour to score my first goal on my debut for Wolves. It has been my dream to play in the Premier League since I was little.

“I am now able to play in the Premier League and on top of that, I was able to score a goal that was needed in that game. I was really happy and proud.”

On working under Lage

“He has various options in terms of tactics and he is a role model for all the players. He encourages all the players to perform better.

“He explains the tactics and positions in very small detail so it’s very easy for me to follow his instructions.”

On coming up against Southampton

“The game with Southampton is important. It’s a very important game so we have to make sure we score a lot of goals and get the victory.”

On looking to the season ahead

“Personally, I don’t really set ambitions. I don’t have set targets. What I try to do is show good performances and interesting games for the fans.

“I want to play a game that makes me satisfied in myself. If I play, I want people to be happy to watch me. That will bring good results. I want to enjoy every game.”

On the ‘Bull’ nickname

“I don’t know where the nickname came from, but I think it’s a good nickname. I never thought it was bad, it’s good.

“I think it’s aggressive [his style of play]. I always do my best to perform well for the fans and I always try to play direct and aggressive.”

On his career to date

“It has been my dream to play on the European stage since I was little. When I was in high school, people, including the boss from Salzburg came over and they told me their future vision.

“They told me how much they wanted me and they assured me how good a player I can be. That made me feel like I wanted to play for that team.’’
