Jacob Sorensen: I can’t wait to get started

20 July 2020

Jacob Sorensen is looking forward to starting a new chapter of his career after joining Norwich City from Esbjerg fB.

Sorensen’s move to the Canaries was completed on Monday afternoon, with the 22-year-old Dane penning a contract until 2023. 

Sorensen, a defensive midfielder who can also play at centre-back, joins from Esbjerg after making 31 appearances in all competitions this season, including two in the Europa League. 

Reflecting on his move to City, Sorensen said: “It’s England, it’s Norwich, it’s a big club. It doesn’t matter if it’s the Championship or Premier League, it’s a great step for me. I’m really excited to play for Norwich. 

“I grew up watching the Premier League and you can also see the Championship on Danish television, I’ve watched a lot of these matches. The English leagues are probably the strongest in the world.” 

With plenty of young blood already in the Canaries squad, Sorensen says it should make his integration into the setup much smoother

Sorensen also likes the fact head coach Daniel Farke gives youth a chance to develop at the club. 

“They [Stuart Webber and Daniel Farke] told me it’s a good group of guys, you can speak to everyone in the group and there’s a lot of young guys, which I think is good for me. 

“I think we will have to talk together and it’s easier to talk to someone your own age, you’ve got a lot more in common. 

“I think he’s a good coach. I don’t know him personally yet, but it’s nice to see the young guys get the chance.” 

Asked if he’s kept up to date with City prior to his move, the young midfielder says he’s watched every televised game he can and can’t wait to experience Carrow Road’s atmosphere. 

“I check the score every time they play and if I have the chance to see them on television, then I’ve watched them. 

“I saw the Manchester City home game at the start of the season and even though I wasn’t there, I could feel it through the television, the atmosphere seemed incredible. 

“I can’t wait to get started, even though the fans aren’t here yet. I’m looking forward to meeting them all at the stadium.”
