Marcel Franke settling into life as a Canary

18 July 2017

New Norwich City defender Marcel Franke says he has quickly settled into the Club during the pre-season tour of Germany.

Having completed a switch to Carrow Road at the end of last week, the 24-year-old had a swift return to his homeland when the City squad headed out for a week-long training camp on Sunday

Speaking to, Franke said: "The guys are very nice and have taken me into the group.

"We have good conditions here in Germany so can work hard to prepare for the season. With Daniel Farke as a Head Coach we will try to play football and I hope we can be successful.

"It's a big step for me. It's a new country, a new language and the first time I've played abroad. It's a new chapter and a new experience.

"I have friends who have played in the Championship for the last three years so spoke to them. They said it's a hard league, with 46 games, but I have to take the experience.

"I will always give 100 per cent in every training session and game. I will give my best on the pitch and try to help the team reach our goals."
