Kevin Volland joined AS Monaco during the last transfer window, and has proven to be a star signing since then. Volland had previously enjoyed a long stint in Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen. Upon his arrival to the Stade Louis II, the German forward seemed stumped by the flow of French football. However, he quickly settled in, and now sits on six goals and three assists. If it hadn’t been for Volland’s goal against Dijon on Sunday, the boys in red and white may have left Burgundy with another loss.
Volland continues to demonstrate his value on and off the pitch, as he recently signed and sent off 20 AS Monaco jerseys to the Klinikverbun Allgäu children’s clinic in Kempten, Germany. The clinic expressed its gratitude to Volland in an instagram post:
The caption reads: “The Allgäu football player @kevin_volland more than surprised our little patients at Christmas… The kids were really happy about the jerseys.”. The post went on to explain that a personal visit to the clinic could not take place due to the coronavirus pandemic, so Volland and the non-profit association, Herzenswünsche (heartfelt wishes) got in touch with them through a video message. Bravo Kevin!
