Michee Efete on his Icelandic adventure

7 June 2017

MICHEE Efete is looking to make the most of his opportunity to progress on foreign climes as he continues his journey with Icelandic side Breiðablik.

The 20-year-old completed a short-term loan following the conclusion of the English domestic season; a campaign in which he had already clocked up over 30 appearances for the Canaries' Under-23s. 

Discussing his temporary switch to the Nordic island country, Efete told "It was a big move, coming to a top team in Iceland who have been in European competition.

"I thought it would be a good opportunity to show people what I can do in a first team environment. I played a lot for Norwich's Under-23s last season so coming straight here meant I've not really had a break from footballl.

"The style of football is different here. The people are different as well, but very nice and I'm getting used to everything and learning new things about the game.

"I want to play as many games as I can while I'm here and see where it takes me."

Efete has already enjoyed a number of standout moments during his time in Iceland, notably earning a senior debut before notching his maiden professional goal two matches later.

"It's been a good few games," the versatile 20-year-old defender explained.

"We lost our first two but now we've won three in a row. We're on a winning streak so now we just want to keep going and push for the European places.

"To score my first goal was a great feeling. It was an away game but the fans were there, and the goal was for the manager who has been good for me since I got there.

"I've got a good relationship with him and with the players too. They've all been really welcoming so I'm enjoying the experience."
