Kenny McLean: It's about us sticking together

Norwich City midfielder Kenny McLean spoke to OTBC, the club's official matchday programme, prior to the visit of Leeds United on Sunday.

"I look at the guys next to me in the changing room and I believe in them," he said. “I know they are good enough. It is about us sticking together, because that is what is going to get us out of this situation.

“I’m not just saying it because I feel the need to. I believe we can get out of this situation. There is a long way to go, and we will fight for every point, starting Sunday.”

Norwich are one of three teams still looking for their first Premier League win of the season, something Leeds achieved by beating Watford 1-0 at the start of October.

“Leeds have got a lot of plaudits and rightly so,” he said. “The way they play is very intense and you can see the intensity that the manager wants them to work under, but we can handle that.

“We play that way as well and we are ready for that battle. We have got our own style of play that we need to implement onto the game, that maybe we haven’t done as much as we should have done this season.

"The opposition are always tough, but it is a game we are looking forward to and a battle we are ready for.”

The support from Norwich fans is hugely appreciated by McLean and his teammates, who will keep fighting to give them performances and results to enjoy.

“It would be easy for them to lose faith in us and to lose belief, but they keep turning up in their numbers and we can only thank them for that,” he said.

“It would be easy for them to not turn up and not spend their hard-earned cash to come and support us but it is their club and they are always there, and we need to put some pride into our performances and give them something to cheer about.”
