Moritz Leitner: I’m really proud of the lads

26 October 2018

Moritz Leitner is "really proud of the lads" following City's victory over Aston Villa on Tuesday, as City prepare for another tough test at Carrow Road on Saturday against Brentford.

The German midfielder has excelled for City since his loan from FC Augsburg was made permanent and we spoke with the City player following his appearance at the player signing session at Jarrold Intersport on Wednesday.

Leitner is pleased with position City are currently in, but believes the players need to keep carrying on the way they have been, Leitner said: “it’s nice to be in the position we are in, we try to think from game to game.

“We want to bring our way of playing football on to the pitch, and want to get the points if we work like we have been. If we go on like that intensity [against Aston Villa] we will see what we can do.”

The 25-year old has been key to Norwich’s recent success on the pitch, but knows it’s a team game and the squad as a whole is in a really positive place at the moment.

“We always have a positive feeling in the changing rooms, of course it’s easier if you have good results but I think also when we have lost some games.

“When we lost some games, for example; against stoke we had a really good performance, but didn’t get any points, we kept our heads up and just wanted to get back to work. We have a good dressing room, and are enjoying it.”

City’s midfielder was instrumental in Tuesday’s win against Aston Villa, but didn’t want to take anything away from the work around him and thinks his teammates should be proud of the job they did.

“It was a really hard and tough game, Aston Villa are a really good team, with high quality.

“I’m really proud of the lads, not only for the result but for the togetherness and the performance how we worked, what we invested for each other on the pitch.”

Farke’s side have yet another win under their belt, again coming from behind to win 2-1 twice in the space of a week.

“It’s always good if we win these games, but to be honest I also like if we don’t go 0-1 behind.

“Maybe if we can do it on Saturday in another way,  it would be really nice. But it’s good to have the feeling that we change these games [when conceding first],” Leitner said.

The players signing event took place on Wednesday afternoon, with Tom Trybull and Moritz Leitner the players involved. The latter enjoyed the event, and believes the togetherness between the supporters and fans is a big factor for the squad.

“After such a big game with that performance, you see some fans and they are happy, we [the players] are happy and of course we have nice supporters, so if we stay together, we can be successful.”
