Mo Leitner: I love being a part of this club and this family

10 November 2018

Mo Leitner was lost for words after Norwich City's dramatic 4-3 victory over Millwall but was keen to praise the togetherness and spirit shown by his City teammates.

City came from behind twice in a remarkable game at Carrow Road and Leitner was almost left speechless post-match.

"It's really, really difficult [to sum up that game]," he said. "The emotions after the game were unbelievable but how we played and how we worked means [the win] is more than deserved. 

"I really don't know what to say. Sometimes you have these games and you have to take it and celebrate. I really loved this game.

"When I scored the goal, it was really nice. It was a really good feeling but then after two seconds, I had a bad feeling.

"I'm happy if I can score but it doesn't matter if I score or Teemu scores or someone else.

"That's why we are so good at the moment. We work for each other and play for each other and we don't care who is there with the goals."

Leitner was keen to praise not just the City starting eleven but the players who came on and those who have found little gametime in recent weeks. He reinforced that the whole playing squad is driving City's brilliant form at present.

"I just have to compliment the lads who are not that much involved at the moment," he . added. "I'm full of respect for them. They train each and every day really hard and give everything for the club.

"Of course for the lads who are playing, who have the gametime, it's much easier. But for the lads who came into the game or sometimes are not in the squad, I'm full of respect for them. They put pressure on the lads who are playing. That's the reason why we are so good at the moment.

"I'm really, really happy to be a part of this club and a part of this family and I really love how the team is working."
