TIM Krul joined Norwich City from Brighton & Hove Albion ahead of the 2018-19 Championship-winning season and played all 46 games of that campaign.
Krul’s senior career began at Newcastle United, where he would go on to be contracted for 12 years, making 185 appearances in all competitions between 2006 and 2017. However, various Newcastle managers deemed the Dutchman surplus to requirements, as he went through loan spells at Falkirk, Carlisle United, Ajax and AZ Alkmaar, before being loaned to Brighton.
The switch to Brighton was made permanent ahead of the 2017-18 season, but Krul barely featured, instead acting as backup to Mathew Ryan. When he did return to playing in the Premier League, it was for Daniel Farke’s Norwich City in the 2019-20 season.
At international level, Krul has represented the Netherlands at various age groups down to Under-15s level. For the senior team, he has made eight appearances, most notably coming on to replace Jasper Cillessen for a 2014 World Cup quarter-final penalty shootout against Costa Rica, in which Krul made two saves and sent Louis van Gaal’s side through to the semi-finals.
