Prior to Norwich City’s EFL Cup clash against Fulham tonight, the Brazilian media have had a chat with Canaries’ midfielder Gabriel Sara.
Following his first year in the Championship, the 24-year-old is off to another good start to the season with one goal and three assists in the league so far, and is quite glad about his adaptation to English football.
Speaking to Lance, Sara also thanked the support he’s been getting from Norwich City fans since his arrival at the club.
“My adaptation to the game and to life here has really been quicker than I imagined,” he told the outlet.
“I already feel at home in England, and I’m at a loss for words to repay the fans’ affection.
Regarding tonight’s game against Fulham, Sara claims to be happy to be facing a team which is full of Brazilians, and says he’ll try to make the most of that experience.
“It’s going to be a very tough game, that’s for sure, especially at their place,” he added.
“It’s a privilege to face players with so much history here in England, like Willian and Andreas (Pereira), who are guys I’ve admired for years. But our team has its weapons and I hope to have a great night, keep up my good form and help Norwich come out qualified.”
Norwich City spent €10.5m to sign Sara from São Paulo in the summer of 2022. It didn’t take long for him to guarantee his place in the team, and with an even higher morale this season, he was a starter in all of their Championship games so far.
Transfermarkt valued the player at €5.5m when he made the move to England, and now rates him at €12m. His contract with the Canaries runs until 2026, with an option for an extra year.
