Tom Trybull said the combination of his new contract and first-half strike, which helped Norwich City to victory over Middlesbrough, made Saturday a “very good day”.
Trybull’s new three-and-a-half-year deal was announced before kick-off and the City midfielder celebrated it in style with a stunning winner to help the Canaries win.
Speaking post-match, Trybull said: “It was a good day for everybody. At the end I’m a little bit sad because I couldn’t play the whole 90 minutes because of my ankle.
“A new contract is good, we won today which is also fine and I’m really happy for the crowd. It was a good day but I’m a little bit sad because of my ankle.
“For sure it [the red card] helped us to play a good game. But already before the red card we were very good in the game. We showed a good game with some good quality on the ball.
“The chances were missing a little bit but before the red card, we were playing really well.
“The goal before half-time was very important for our self-confidence. It was important and it was a good sign for the whole stadium that we were still good in the game.
“I just tried to shoot. I was a little bit annoyed of the situation because we played a lot around the defence of Boro. That’s why I decided to shoot. The goal was okay."
Trybull has become a real crowd favourite since joining in the summer and he could not hide his delight after being rewarded with a new deal.
“I appreciate getting a new contract. The meetings we had and conversations we had right now are over. We have found a good solution for the next few years.
“I appreciate that I got the chance to play at this club from Stuart Webber and of course the coach [Daniel Farke]. I’m happy to be a part of this team and I give my all.”
