Moritz Leitner: My focus is on the present

2 February 2018

Moritz Leitner says he is focused on the here and now at Norwich City, starting with Saturday's Sky Bet Championship game at home to Middlesbrough (3pm).

The former Dortmund midfielder  last week, arriving on the same day as Onel Hernandez and Dennis Srbeny.

"I feel really, really good to be here," Leitner told the media at Friday's press conference.

"I want to have a big smile after every game. It's been just a week, but it feels great.

"I don't know what happens in the future and don't think of it. For now, I just think of tomorrow.

"The past is gone. The future will become. I live for now, here. I'm very happy to be with my new team.

"Everyone has been very nice to me. Last week I went into the city with Dennis and Onel to have a look and it's a nice place."

Leitner says the presence of Daniel Farke, a coach he worked with while at Dortmund, was a driving force behind him making the move to England.

"He was the biggest factor in me coming here," the 25-year-old added.

"Daniel is a very good coach. He wants to play football and control the game, which is what I like.

"I hope I can help him soon as he's told me a lot of good things about Norwich. I'm concentrated on giving my best to help this club.

"To play in England, for any player, is a big step. It's a good experience for me."
