Hudson River Blue: You were one of the big off-season signings for NYCFC, and everybody was excited to watch you play. But I don’t think anybody expected you to be a starter from Day 1. Did you expect to make such an immediate impact on the team?

Hannes Wolf: To be honest, yes. Because I know my qualities, and I watched the team and I know maybe that the team needs that kind of player. Because of this, I made my decision to come here, to leave Europe. After my time in Germany, I wanted to be sure that I will come to a team where I get my chances, you know?
