RICHARD MONEY: ZAGREB GAME A BIG DEAL

27 February 2017

City play European quarter-final next Monday

ACADEMY Manager Richard Money believes City's Under-23s side will relish Monday's Premier League International Cup quarter-final.

The Canaries take on Dinamo Zagreb at Carrow Road, with tickets FREE for all supporters.

The Club is urging fans to come and back the boys in one of their biggest matches of the 2016/17 campaign.

Money told canaries.co.uk: "I think it's a big deal for the players and for the club.

"It's the first time that we've been able to reach this stage and we want to progress further.

"Hopefully we'll get ourselves a really good crowd in the stadium and it will be a good atmosphere. Let's hope that they can cheer us on to victory.



"I'm not sure how used Dinamo Zagreb will be to playing in a stadium like ours and in front of a big crowd. We have to use that to our advantage."

City reached the last eight of the competition for the first time after winning all three of their group matches against Valencia, Celtic and Aston Villa.

Croatian outfit Zagreb are familiar with English opposition from their own path to this stage and Money believes it will be a highly-competitive cup tie.

"They came through a tough group, they beat both Chelsea and Swansea," he added.

"That suggests that they've acquitted themselves well. When I look at them, they're what I would call a proper Under-23s team.

"It's going to be like playing against a mens team; they're tough, they're strong and they counter-attack well. It will be a good experience."

Continuing City's initiative from the previous two campaigns, entry will once again be free for all supporters. Tickets can be claimed online HERE, by calling 0844 826 1902 or in any of the three Canaries Official stores.

Fans arriving on the night without pre-booked tickets are advised to turn up early.
