Norwich City: Max Aarons backs Danel Sinani to be a success

06:00 July 17, 2022

Max Aarons is backing Danel Sinani to play a major role in Norwich City’s quest for Championship promotion.

The Luxembourg midfielder has returned to Carrow Road after an impressive loan spell at Huddersfield Town and has caught the eye of boss Dean Smith and his colleagues.

Sinani featured over 70 minutes in City’s 3-0 win over French side Marseille on Saturday and went close with a curling effort that sailed just past the post in the second half.

As Norwich look for additional creativity in their general game, the hope is that Sinani can inject an attacking advantage into the team.

Aarons, who played behind Sinani as a right-back, believes he will make his impact in City’s squad felt in the Championship.

“He looks really good,” Aarons told official club channels.

“He also had a good year last year and he came and brought what he did on loan here. He now knows the expectations of Norwich and it will be good for him to put it in his legs so that the season is stepping up. He looked really sharp, really good, and I loved playing with him.

“I hope he can have a really good season and really help us.”

Norwich have impressed with their level of performance against a side that will be playing Champions League football next season.

City boss Dean Smith has challenged his team to step up a gear ahead of this fixture and Aarons believes competitive games are key to preparing players for the tough season ahead.

“We needed a good run-out and that’s the level of opposition we want to play against,” Aarons said. “It shows where you are at as a group if you come to places like this and get a good result, so I’m really happy with how it went.

“Today was the first really solid test that you can put yourself against and see where you are and I felt really good today to get 60-70 minutes. I felt really good and strong, passing from two weeks ago without playing a game to now I felt really strong.

“Every pre-season is really tough and going into this pre-season has been different to the last ones I’ve had, especially with the change of manager, but I feel as fit and strong as before.

“It’s just about breaking up the games and putting as much of it into your legs as possible to prepare for the season. I think everyone saves minutes and that’s what we need, a full team to go out and compete. It’s huge that we keep improving, keep playing and stay fit.
