Yanic Wildschut: I'm developing as a player

27 October 2017

Yanic Wildschut says life under Daniel Farke has seen him add more strings to his Norwich City bow.

The former Wigan wideman has had to adapt to new roles and new instructions since Farke took the helm, including operating as a wing-back on occasion.

"I always used to play as a left-winger in a 4-3-3," he told the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday.

"Now, I do more defensive work. A big part of that has been getting my fitness levels up.

"It's the total package of being a footballer now. You have to attack and defend, and you have to work hard.

"I wasn't used to playing the way the manager likes to at first but it suits me. I'm enjoying it at the moment.

"It took me a while but lately it's been going alright. Hopefully I can keep contributing with goals and assists."

Wildschut's adjustment to a fresh approach mirrors that of the team generally, with ample evidence in recent weeks of gelling into a collecive unit ahead of this weekend's meeting with Derby County.

"From the beginning, the new players fitted in," the 25-year-old explained.

"Right from the pre-season tour in Germany, things were good. We probably needed that bad time early in the season to know how to deal with setbacks.

"It's nice to see when things you've worked on are coming off in games. We're not conceding many and we're getting clean sheets.

"We play with togetherness. At home we have to go for it. We respect the opponent but we'll be going for the three points."
