Max Aarons: To beat a Premier League side shows what we can do

28 August 2018

City defender Max Aarons helped the Canaries to a 3-1 victory over Cardiff City as he scored his first senior goal for the Club.

Aarons made his debut for City in the first round of the Carabao Cup against Stevenage, where the same scoreline booked them a place in tonight’s second round match.

Aarons, who has come up through the Norwich City Academy, made it three to the Canaries in the second half after two goals from Dennis Srbeny.

He said: “It was amazing, not just the goal but our performance too. We came here with a game plan and we executed it really well so I am really happy.

“I don’t think the pressure was on us it was on them, so it allowed us to play with as much freedom as we wanted to and it really helped us in the game. You could see we were passing it well, moving well and we really dug in at the end.

“To beat a Premier League side shows what we can do so hopefully we can take that into the game at the weekend.”

Aarons celebrated his goal with around 400 home fans who made the long-trip to cheer on the squad.

“I don’t really get into that position often so it was more an instinct thing but I’m obviously delighted with the goal, it is an amazing feeling,” he said. “And being up that end with the fans in the corner was amazing. I didn’t know what to do so I ran over to the fans and did a knee slide.

"The fans deserved the win, they stuck behind us the whole game and were really loud so I am buzzing for them as well.”

And Aarons hopes the team can continue that confidence and momentum in Sunday’s derby match at Portman Road.

“We spoke about togetherness the other day and we have bounced back really well and hopefully we can take that into the Ipswich game too,” he said.
