Mourgos: I love the playing style here

23 August 2017

New signing Savvas Mourgos says the playing style being implemented by Daniel Farke was a big reason behind his decision to join Norwich City.

Mourgos joined City from Arsenal on Tuesday and has already started training with Matt Gill’s U23s as they prepare for their next Premier League 2 match with Stoke City on Friday.

Speaking in his first interview with, Mourgos said: “I think this is a good opportunity for me because I hope I can get more time to play here. I feel very good and I’m glad that I’ve moved here.

“I learned a lot of things at Arsenal. I learned to be stronger with the ball and to play it quicker around the pitch. It’s a very high level over there and now it’s time to show people what I’ve learned and what I can do.

“I didn’t know too much about Norwich before I came here but I’ve watched their last three games and I can see they play good football. They like to keep the ball on the floor and not play long passes like other teams do."

Mourgos, 19, joined Arsenal from Greek side Panionios in 2014 and has spent the last two seasons playing with the Gunners’ U18 and U23 sides.

He describes himself as a creative attacking midfielder and hopes his ability with the ball will catch the eye of Farke.

“I think my best skills are my passing and long shots and I like to dribble a lot as well,” added Mourgos.

“The new manager came from Dortmund U23s and they like to pass the ball on the floor and they know how to play.

“I’m here to impress the new manager. I want to be part of the first team and I will try my best to get there.”
