Dennis Srbeny: I'm looking for goals

9 March 2018

Dennis Srbeny says he's starting to fully settle into Norwich City life, six weeks after joining the club from German side SC Paderborn.

The striker made his first start for the Canaries away to Wolves last month, with his full home debut following a few days ago against Nottingham Forest.

Off the pitch, things are taking shape too, with Srbeny set to begin lessons to further improve his English in the near future.

Speaking exclusively to, the 23-year-old said: "The first weeks were very busy, coming to a new city from Germany.

"Now, I have my new apartment so I'm very happy. It's near the stadium, which is perfect.

"I'm now able to do my work, which is football, because the other things are not in my head.

"If you join in January, it can be difficult as you have no pre-season and don't know your teammates. Here, it's been easier because everyone has been very friendly.

"I needed time to understand English football, because it's different. Joining with Onel [Hernandez] and Mo [Leitner], it's been welcoming for us."

Srbeny's first taste of Carrow Road came in the East Anglian derby, where Timm Klose's header rescued the most dramatic of points.

"It was crazy but very important to score in the last minute," the forward explained when reflecting on the game.

"The fans were unbelievable. It was a nice experience for me, the first time I'd played in such a good atmosphere - I can't describe it in words.

"I think I've had five games now, and I know I must score. Maybe that will happen soon? 

"I want to train, play, get better and hopefully score some goals. If I do that, I'll be very happy because it's my job to score goals.

"Football is a team sport. If we score the first goal in a game, things will be better for us."
