Press Conference

Wes Hoolahan looks ahead to his final City game

27 April 2018

Wes Hoolahan is determined to soak in every second of his Carrow Road farewell when he makes his last ever Norwich City appearance on Saturday.

The 35-year-old is set to depart the club at the end of the season, bringing to an end his ten-year stay in Norfolk - with a series of farewell plans aligned alongside City's match with Leeds.

"It's been a surreal and very emotional week," Hoolahan told the media at Friday's press conference.

"I've got a lot of messages. It's sometimes hard to have so many nice Tweets and texts about you. I can't wait to play in front of the fans one last time.

"I really appreciate the support. I've had such a great connection with the fans and have had an amazing ten years.

"I can't wait for tomorrow."

The legendary playmaker says there will always have an unbreakable affinity with the Canaries, something he wants to reaffirm once his playing days are over.

"I'd love to come back to the club one day," he added.

"This club means the world to me. It's been amazing and Norwich is a wonderful place.

"Every week you have 27,000 fans here. Everyone in the city is so nice and I just want to say 'thanks very much' because it's been an amazing ten years.

"When I finish with football, I'll come back here and cheer the team on week-in, week-out from the stands. My son Noah is a big Norwich City fan, so I'll have to come back for games!"
