Dennis Srbeny: It was a special moment

9 April 2018

Dennis Srbeny says it was a special feeling to get off the mark for the Canaries after he pounced to put City 2-0 up against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Srbeny slotted home Harrison Reed’s pass after peeling away from John Terry, a well-deserved goal for an excellent all-round performance.

"It was a fantastic feeling for me to score my first goal,” Srbeny told the press on Monday lunchtime. “I'd missed chances before, so I'm really happy about it. It was fantastic to play against John Terry, who is such an amazing player. It felt fantastic to score against him.

"To see all the Norwich fans standing up to celebrate my goal was a really special moment."

Srbeny admits he has understandably taken time to adapt to the English game following his January move from SC Paderborn, but says he is feeling very settled at Norwich.

"I had to get used to the football in the beginning, but now after a lot of training and playing I feel I'm more used to it now,” he said. "It's more physical in England than in Germany. There are more sprints and duels, so I'd say English football is harder.

"It's a dream for every footballer to play in England, and I'm really proud of myself for playing for Norwich. I feel ready to score more goals."

“Norwich is a very pretty city and I feel very welcome here. I want to learn more English and I'm getting extra lessons.”

Turning his attention to Tuesday night’s clash at Sunderland, Srbeny says City are desperate to end the season on a high – starting at the Stadium of Light.

"Every footballer wants to win every game,” he said. “It is our task to make sure we try and win every game before the end of the season. And it's my aim to score some more goals too.

"It'll be a tough game tomorrow. But if we match our team performance from Saturday then we will be very confident.

"We played well against Aston Villa, and Fulham too, and they're both good sides. We're heading in the right way, and have a really good team when everyone is fit."
