Ibrahim Amadou: We are hungry for points at Palace

27 September 2019

Ibrahim Amadou says Norwich City have learned lessons from last week's defeat at Burnley as they prepare for their next test at Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Despite creating chances throughout the game, City were beaten by a two-goal salvo from Clarets striker Chris Wood in the opening 15 minutes at Turf Moor.

But Amadou says the team is keen to bounce back this weekend at Selhurst Park.

In an exclusive chat with Canaries TV, Amadou said: "After every game, we need to learn. The last game was difficult for us but now we need to be ready for the next game.

"In football, it’s very important to be ready from the first minute to the last minute. I think we learned a lot from it and we will be better next time.

"If we need to do well in the Premier League we need to win away. We need to start this weekend. If you don’t take the points away, it will be difficult."

In his first chat with us since starting his Norwich City career, the loanee revealed how much he is enjoying his time with the Canaries so far.

He was patricularly glowing in his praise for his teammates and how they've helped him settle in to life in England.

"I feel good," Amadou continued. "The guys have been very nice with me. There are a lot of good guys. When I arrived here, I spoke with them and they helped me feel comfortable in the dressing room."

The 26-year-old has already struck an strong and important relationship with his colleagues, notably Ben Godfrey who he's shared central-defensive duties with in the last two games.

"Ben is a good guy. I speak with him a lot so it’s really good for me to play with him.

"They [Christoph Zimmermann and Timm Klose] have helped me also because they both speak a little bit of French. So when I arrived here, I spoke a lot with them so it was really good for me."
