Tim Krul: Promotion to the Premier League is a fairytale

27 April 2019

Norwich City goalkeeper Tim Krul thanked Daniel Farke and everyone else involved with the club after the Canaries secured promotion to the Premier League.

The ‘keeper was out with an injury two years ago and had struggled for gametime before joining the Canaries at the start of the season but has since become a regular in the Norwich side.

“It’s a fairy tale,” said Krul. "I was in a deep dark place when I had my injury. To start here tonight I can’t thank enough people, the boss, Stuart Webber, the Club, the fans because they stuck by us all season.

“The players, because we have got so much talent in this group it’s just amazing and they deserve to be up. We have been the best team all season you know and even every challenge that was thrown at us we managed to deal with it.”

“Again tonight, it’s not easy to come out, everybody’s expecting that we are going to beat them and we came out flying and it’s amazing.”

Krul has had some amazing career highlights, including a World-Cup semi-final but believes this is another chapter in his career.

“It’s been such a journey and I’ve seen a lot in my career but this is just another chapter and I need to write it all down because this is incredible. The amount of moments, the ups and downs, the displays it’s been pretty impressive.”

The Dutch man took time out to credit the supporters and knows the Canaries will be flying into the Premier League with so much confidence.

“The supporter’s stook by us, and from the first game I played here till now the whole City is bouncing, and you know we are going to attack the Premier League with so much confidence now and just embrace it. We deserve it on merit and we just need to get the trophy next week.

“We’ve got a couple of days to party then focus because we need a point , and we need that trophy. We are allowed to enjoy it.”
