Norwich City announced the signing of Luxembourgish midfielder Danel Sinani on Friday evening, and canaries.co.uk was on hand to conduct the 23-year-old’s first interview with the Club over video call.
Sinani will join his Norwich teammates at the start of the 2020-21 season.
“For me, it’s a big step because it will be the first time that I leave my country, Luxembourg, so I’m very excited to join the club,” he said.
Sinani’s diversity, a trait observed by City’s Head Coach Daniel Farke, means he can play a number of positions across the attack.
“I’m actually a number ten, so an offensive midfield player,” he clarified. “I often also play as a right winger, and sometimes as a striker, but my position I typically play in is at number ten.
“Compared to last season, this season I’ve been more like a striker. I scored more goals than last year, and I think I’ve improved myself in terms of how to be stronger in the box.”
Sinani’s contact with Norwich stretches back to January, and he’s been impressed by what he’s seen from afar since then.
“Norwich is a very big club with many good players,” he added. “I will try to do my best and try to continue to hopefully score goals and to help the team to get in a high position.
“I spoke to Daniel Farke in January when I met him and the Sporting Director, Stuart Webber. We spoke together and he told me a bit about how he works and how the team is supposed to play. I’m excited to join.
“I know about the style of play of Teemu Pukki. I think, as an offensive player myself, I have watched more of the offensive players at the club and they play very good football. I’ve analysed them in many games.
“I’ve heard a lot of good things about Norwich City and I’m really excited to join you guys in the summer. For me, the most important thing in our situation is that you’re keeping well and keeping safe.”
