German-born Ghanaian attacker Karim Bellarabi has hailed his fantastic volley for Bayer Leverkusen in their 4-2 triumph over Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga over the weekend and says Bayer are ‘clicking’ in the early season.
The 24-year-old capped a brace fightback from Leverkusen with a slamming acrobatic volley from 20-yards after setting up the third goal at the BayArena.
“Well, Hakan Calhanoglu’s cross was absolutely perfect. But yeah, when you’ve got this growing sense of self-confidence, you back yourself to take on the shot. Obviously, sometimes a shot like that can fly over the bar, but thankfully in this case it just nestled in the corner. It was a perfect strike against Hertha Berlin,” he told Bundesliga.com.
The former Hull City target is also delighted with Leverkusen’s form in the early stages of the Bundesliga season.
“We’re just really clicking as a team. When you’re being given such trust and confidence from the coach [Roger Schmidt], it gives you so much self-belief on the pitch.”
