Club legend presents Timm Klose with framed shirt to mark milestone

6 December 2018

City defender Timm Klose was presented with a framed shirt by Canaries legend Jerry Goss in honour of his 100th appearance for the Club.

Klose reached the milestone during Norwich’s home win against Aston Villa on October 23, when he also wore the captain’s armband.

The shirt, which was worn by Klose during the game, was signed by his teammates and presented on behalf of the Club ahead of training by Goss along with Sporting Director Stuart Webber.

Goss made 238 appearances for Norwich between May 1984 and April 1996 and scored in both legs of the 1993-1994 UEFA Cup games against Bayern Munich.

The Norwich legend congratulated Klose on his milestone and the rest of the team and coaching staff for their success so far this season.

Speaking at the presentation, Goss said: “Timm epitomises everything that is great about the Football Club. The skill and ability he shows every week is there for us all to see and admire, but I think it’s his commitment, passion and loyalty which shines bright and shouts very loud.

“It’s an honour for me to congratulate Timm on his milestone and I wish him the very best of luck in his next 100 games for Norwich City Football Club.

“I also want to thank everyone for inviting me back to Colney, it’s a complex which is very special to me. I left my legs and my lungs out there somewhere on the pitch and my heart and my soul at Carrow Road. My love for this Club is endless and it means a lot to me to be here, it’s a very special moment.”

Klose joined Norwich’s First Team in January 2016 from VfL Wolfsburg and recently represented Switzerland in their UEFA Nations League campaign.

He said: “The Club has given me so much love and so much trust. It is always great to give something back and I’m very happy that I made my 100th appearance.

“It was a special day to go out as captain and I was happy to win the game [against Aston Villa]. It was a great day all around.

“It’s always nice to meet Club legends and it’s great to receive the shirt from someone who played on the highest level for Norwich. The fact that he is still connected to the Club and loves the Club shows the passion in and around Norwich.”
