Norwich City have had plenty of people knocking them over the last eighteen months but with their turnaround in form this season, the Canaries are now starting to see some praise come their way, unless you’re Ian Abrahams, of course.
After all, you can’t stay at the top of the Championship and not attract any attention, can you?
There’s a quite in-depth article over at Sky Sports this morning in which there are quite a few quotes from various people about Norwich, with the majority coming from Stuart Webber.
There is though, a little bit of stuff from another German manager who is doing rather well at the moment, a certain Juergen Klopp.
Klopp’s Liverpool are currently topping the Premier League and are also through to the last 16 in the Champions League, although I imagine that the Moose thinks “that’s bad for the English game.”
Former Borussia Dortmund Head Coach, Klopp had a few things to say about Norwich and their players, many of whom he knows well.
“All the Norwich results I know, second only to the Huddersfield games. I had a lot of their players,” he told Sky Sports.
“Moritz Leitner was awesome for me and it’s not just him. Mario Vrancic was my player. He was my Mario Gotze at Mainz, 17 and in the squad. I have known him for ages and he is a good friend of my son’s. Marco Stiepermann was in the squad for the 2011 championship at Dortmund. Felix Passlack was a very young prospect there alongside Christian Pulisic.”
