Norwich City midfielder Alexander Tettey’s current deal expires next summer and he’s so far not signed an extension at Carrow Road.
He was at Norwegian side Rosenborg between 2003 and 2009 and there have been numerous reports suggesting he would rejoin his former club.
However, the 33-year-old dismissed these claims but admitted in September he’s frustrated with constant rumours linking him to Rosenborg. Speaking to VG last month, the Canaries captain also stressed he is unsure as to where he will play next season.
Tettey has now spoken to Norway’s TV2 and decided against giving a detailed insight on his future and also explained the reason for that.
“I’m not young anymore, but I do as best I can. Rest is important, and after a game like this [against Manchester United], I sit in the ice bath longer than everyone else. We’ll see how much more the body can handle after this season,” he said.
TV2 claims the player’s future at the Premier League side remains uncertain.
Meanwhile, Norwich have managed only two wins out of 10 league games are currently sitting 19th in the table. Tettey pointed out the reason behind the English club’s poor run.
“When we play matches, a lot goes against us. We can’t win decisive situations, something you have to do to win matches,” the Norwegian explained.
“When playing in the Premier League, you do not have time to grow up and become stronger. There is battle after battle and every opponent is strong.”
Daniel Farke’s side have also had bad luck with injuries as they are currently without eight players.
Speaking of his side’s injury woes, Tettey said: “I don’t know what happens to our injury situation, but I hope we get some defenders back soon. We need to be solid at the back.”
“We need to be solid in defence. If we are not, we do not have so many opportunities. The foundation starts from the back, and now that we have two more players out with injury, it’s getting a little difficult.
“Our German trainer is demanding, and we train hard during the weekdays. I think we’re strong physically, but it’s possible the Premier League matches are tougher for us than last year’s Championship matches were.”
