Teemu Pukki: I have settled in really well at Norwich

12 September 2018

City striker Teemu Pukki said he is settling into the Club well and enjoying the pace of English football.

Pukki signed a three-year deal with the Canaries in the summer after spending the last four seasons playing for Danish Superliga side Brondby.

And he’s already netted three goals for Norwich during league and cup fixtures, and has just returned from international duty where he scored in both of Finland’s UEFA Nations League matches.

Speaking ahead of the international break, Pukki said: “I have settled in really well at Norwich, there are some good lads in the locker room and they have really taken me in. And my family have settled well. My fiancée likes the place and although our baby is too young to know what is going on we all like it here.”

Pukki said he has enjoyed the move into Championship football.

“The tempo is a bit higher than what it was in Denmark but it has not been that difficult for me to get used to playing here,” he said. “I actually thought it would be harder to get settled in the league and the tempo of the league.

“As an offensive player it was important to get some goals as soon as possible and it was good for me to get it in our second league game and after that a couple more goals too. So that is really important and it gives you more confidence to play.”

And as City look ahead to their next Sky Bet Championship game on Saturday at home against Middlesbrough, Pukki reflected on the Canaries’ start to the season.

He said: “The first games which we lost I think we played well, we just couldn’t get the points and then the Sheffield game when we conceded the goal in the last minute that’s always something that shouldn’t happen. It was important for us to get that first win a couple of weeks ago and I believe we can win more games now.”
