Ozan Kabak is reliving a ‘horror season’ with Norwich City as relegation looks extremely likely for Daniel Farke and co. this season.
Kabak is on loan with the Canaries, having joined in the summer after a spell on loan at Liverpool in the second half of last season.
He’s been a regular for Farke’s side so far, but things have hardly gone well, with Norwich winless in their first nine games and looking likely to drop straight back into the Championship by the end of the campaign.
It’s already caused fears at parent club Schalke, who are hoping Norwich can stay in the Premier League and thus activate a clause to make Kabak’s loan a permanent move.
Things are going badly in that regard, and for Kabak, the ‘childhood dream’ of playing in the Premier League is ‘turning into a nightmare’, according to WAZ.
They say that Kabak was supposed to ‘recommend himself’ to a new employer during his loan spell with Norwich, but that is nowhere close to happening as ‘nothing is working’ for him or Norwich.
It’s a familiar feeling for the centre back, who was relegated with Schalke in a season in which he ‘faltered’ every time his club did.
That saw him go to Liverpool in the second half of the campaign, but he was unable to convince there, with the Reds instead going for Ibrahima Konate in the summer.
Now he’s trying to impress at Norwich but the fall he once experienced with his parent club ‘seems to be repeating itself’ at Carrow Road, where the prospects of a permanent move are going from slim to none.
