Marco Stiepermann: Everyone is contributing to our good form

24 November 2018

Marco Stiepermann highlighted the collective effort of the team as Norwich City made it six league wins in a row with a 4-1 victory at Swansea City.

The triumph ensured City kept up their scintillating form, scoring four goals – the third time that’s happened in as many games – and clinching another three points.

Stiepermann was full of praise for the team’s performance when canaries.co.uk caught up with him post-match and he said it’s important everyone contributes to the cause.

“It was a great result, especially to make it six wins in a row,” he said. “It’s just amazing and we’re enjoying this time right now.

“I was really pleased with our attacking play in the first-half, especially with different players scoring because it’s important for our confidence.

“It was a team performance. Always when we score goals, it’s never like one player does something extraordinary in the situation.

“It’s more like we score team goals and that’s really great.

“I’m absolutely proud to be a part of this team at the moment. We are top of the league and that’s unbelievable. Like I said before, we really can enjoy to play football here at the moment.”

Stiepermann got City’s third goal in the first-half after a superb build-up involving Emi Buendia, Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons. The German playmaker was on hand to tap home from six yards.

“It was difficult,” he joked. “No! To be honest, it was one of my easiest goals. But you have to stand and make sure you are there to score.

“I’m happy to score my first goal [of the league season].”

Stiepermann was also keen to praise Pukki, who put the result beyond doubt in the second-half with his tenth league goal of the season.

“After half-time, Swansea were on the frontfoot and were near to our goal. But we have Teemu Pukki in that situation.

“It was a really important goal and the game was done then.

“It’s excellent to play with him. He’s always there when you need him. If you have the feeling he’s not really in the game, he’s always dangerous for the opposition. He’s a crazy striker!”
