Man of the Match display from City's central defender

TIMM Klose saluted the efforts of his Norwich City colleagues in the wake of Saturday's 0-0 draw with Manchester City at Carrow Road.

The Swiss international centre-back was named 'Anglian Home Improvements Man of the Match' following a solid defensive display, helping the Canaries to a first clean sheet since his January arrival from Wolfsburg.

However, Klose was keen to share credit across City's squad, and told the media after the game: "We worked hard and we did a great job.

"Today was an intense match but we played as a team, and I have to thank them for that. It's hard to defend against Sergio Aguero because of his movement and pace but we kept him away as much as possible.

"We know we need to strong in the next few games now; to focus and work hard as a team. That's what we must do to get away from the bottom three."

Klose feels he is settling into life at his new side well, having quickly become a regular in Alex Neil's back-line.

"The last few games I've felt myself getting more comfortable on the pitch," the 27-year-old explained.

"I really enjoy the pace and physical aspect of playing in England, which is a bit different from Germany. I'm getting more confident, and I'm so hungry to stay in this league.

"We won't look too far ahead so will take things step by step. It's important we focus on our game next weekend for now."
