Norwich City summer signing Christian Fassnacht has hailed the infrastructure at the club, believing they belong in the Premier League.
That midfielder has been speaking to Blick in Switzerland after swapping the country for England in a €3m move this summer.
He is one of several new signings to have arrived at Norwich as part of their efforts to strengthen the squad in this window and get back to the Premier League once again.
The move to Norwich has brought an end to a six year stay with Young Boys, whom he joined in a €1.5m deal in June 2017 and went on to make over 251 appearances for, managing 75 goals and 43 assists in that time.
Those are certainly numbers Norwich will be hoping he can recreate during his time at Carrow Road, with them determined to bounce back from a miserable campaign last year.
They’ve been up and down the two leagues since 2019, earning promotion that year with a first placed finish before finishing 20th the following year. That process was repeated in the next two seasons before last year’s disappointment ended the cycle.
Fassnacht, though, insists they are a team who are meant to be in the top flight, and that’s demonstrated by the standards behind the scenes.
“There are good guys here. And I also like the way football is played. There’s a lot of speed in there, a high intensity,” he said.
“I want to develop as a footballer and as a person. In terms of name and reputation, it belongs in the Premier League. We don’t even have to talk about the infrastructure. It’s just phenomenal.
“The campus here is in a different league! For example, we always do our training session in three places.
“If we are on the last lawn towards the end of the training session, the first one is already being mowed and cared for.”
