Jacob Sorensen: I’m looking forward to seeing the fans

15 July 2021

Norwich City midfielder Jacob Sorensen is excited to see Canaries fans at Carrow Road in the Premier League after he extended his stay at the club.

“I’m happy and glad to be here,” he told “It’s an amazing club with amazing people working here. I’m just looking forward to seeing the fans.

“It was a big step for me [to move here], my first time abroad, but I also think that it was the right step to develop myself and come to a good place, good team and a good club, so it’s been a good year.”

Sorensen’s first appearance came out of his natural position, as he was chosen to replace Xavi Quintilla at left-back for last season’s trip to Brentford.

“It was a bit chaotic, to be honest,” he recalled. “They told me five minutes before kick-off that I should play and just try to enjoy it. My teammates were amazing, helping me through it, so it was a good experience.

“The goal against Nottingham Forest with 2,000 fans was a personal highlight, but mostly the end of the season, when we celebrated a few times. Not only the promotion, but also finishing first in the league.

“I was happy to help the team, do what I can when I play and I think it went well.”

City fans may have seen Sorensen watching the Euros wearing an England shirt on the weekend thanks to Jordan Hugill’s influence, but he has been able to enjoy the off-season supporting Denmark.

“I stayed back in Denmark and enjoyed being in Copenhagen with the Euros there,” he said. “Denmark did good and I was spending time with family and friends.

“I can’t wait to be back to be honest. Hopefully the fans are back, which is what I heard. I’m looking forward to seeing Carrow Road packed."
