Kieran Dowell: It’s amazing to be champions

1 May 2021

Kieran Dowell scored two of Norwich City’s four goals at home to Reading as the Canaries clinched the Championship title at Carrow Road on Saturday.

“Convincing second half,” he said. “Lots of goals. Sort of relaxed last ten or 15 minutes knowing we’re champions which was really nice.

“We knew we are the best team in the league and it was about showing that today, probably too much in the first half but in the second half we relaxed a bit and got it over the line.

“Like loads of games, we create loads of chances don’t we?”

Assessing his season as a whole, Dowell is rightly happy with how he followed a period on the sidelines with a good run of form towards the end of the season.

“I was injured in the first half of the season but I’ve had a great end to the season and it’s amazing to be champions and go up to the Premier League.

“The boss said at the start of the season that not many teams, I think only Fulham in the last ten years, have gone straight back up so it’s not easy to do. Some lads had interest in them but they kept their heads on it and we’ve got a gread squad and bunch of lads.

“There’s real togetherness in the team. The standard that’s set from the coaches, the boss and the players throughout the week is always on it. We train really hard and reap the rewards on weekends.

“It’s a little bit awkward celebrating into the camera, it would have been amazing to have the fans here. We’ll see them next season.

“I came to Norwich to get promoted to the Premier League so it’s great to do that the first time. I can’t wait for it.”
