Andrew Hjulsager is back in good form. This week came the Ostend-player for the second time in the season on the round in which the team in Belgium after the victory over the league leaders Gent, and he can sense that he is now finally back on the level, which two years ago got him sold from Danish to Spanish football.
"I really feel that I again have it at the time in Brøndby, where the ball almost went into, every time I kicked in the goal. This is how I have it now compared to the last two seasons at Celta Vigo, where I had the complete opposite," says Andrew Hjulsager and adds:
"There, I played maybe always safe and not, as I could, and have in me."
This time, there is also an expectation that the success on the pitch continues, the Danish offensivspiller tell now about an injury that was discovered by chance and did that he sat out for over two months.
An injury that lost the drømmestart, he got a short inside of his stay in Ostend, and which allowed the team won the first two matches of the season and, among other things beat Anderlecht out.
But in both matches bad Andrew Hjulsager to be changed in the middle of the second half. With a lårskade in one leg, but in reality it was the other leg that put him outside of the track in large parts of the autumn.
"I came here and played almost just the same. I got 90 minutes in a practice match the day after I came, and played three matches within a week after one and a half month's holiday. It was too early. The training was pretty tough, but I just drove on because I just wanted to play. It might have cost."
"In both of the first two games, I can already in the first half to notice that I suddenly can't sprint. I can run, but not sprint, so I run on and on, and when we hit 60 minutes, I say 'ok, now I can not more', and had to switch myself out."
"I went to the scan to get checked my right thigh, and then we would also just have checked the left, and there we discovered that my muscle damage. The doctors found out that I had a big gash in forlåret, but I could only notice it by sprint or fatigue. They know not just where it comes from, for it is not something that football players usually have. And I have never had muscle damage, but now it's thankfully completely gone, and I can play freely again," explains the 24-year-old dane, who, as mentioned, was out for over two months and then had to use some matches to get in shape.
Now he is there too, and Oostende has for a long period of time of lost matches again started to win with his Danish talisman of the team.
Andrew Hjulsager has in the recent matches scored in the new victories over Anderlecht and Gent.
"I can feel that when the teammates get the ball, looking after me, even when it's promotion on the pitch. It is nice that there is the atmosphere around the things. And then it's just a big pat on the back to get, when I am again on the week hold among very many good players. In the fighting before our victories, I have also been praised for my performance, even though we may not have won, but here in the last matches, I've got the makings of a good imprint with goals and assists, and it is just delicious."
"I have all the time believed that I could commit myself abroad, if only I was shown trust. It is a big redemption to know that I play every time, instead of every day, I warrior for training, but only get five minutes on the pitch."
"I am no doubt now, that when I get the ball and have an opponent in front of me, so I just go on him, and it does not succeed every time, but it does it several times, and the things can and should I do. And the good thing is that even if it does not succeed a few times in a row, so I won't be picked out. I have the confidence to do it, and you will succeed also more often," explains Andrew Hjulsager, who riles up a little bit over, that the Jupiler League will soon go on holidays.
"It gets a little annoying, for I am inside 'the zone', but there are, fortunately, not so long break down here, because we go in once again in January. So it should probably go."Updated Date: 21 December 2019, 08:00
