Teemu Pukki was named MVP of the Month. The Finn came in by scoring a wonderful goal last month and thanked Norwich coach Daniel Farke and accepted. “We must remember to appreciate that he plays with the yellow jersey,” believes the German.
Championship leaders Norwich are attacking the Premier League and recently spearhead Timo Poke has started all his cylinders.
The blue and white striker has now been rewarded for his impressive efforts in February. After seven goals and an assist in seven matches, he was named Player of the Month in the series.
– It was a really good month. I think there are many good players in other teams who could have won the award, as Finn comments on the club’s website.
There is only one prize I’m looking for this season, and it’s going to the Premier League. These prices are nice, but in the end it doesn’t mean much if we don’t succeed in what we want, namely, to reach the league. All focus on that.
An important goal man
Norwich leads the league by ten points at the moment. In February, there were five wins, a cross and a loss for the team – a balance that wasn’t enough for Daniel Farke to be the coach of the month in the series.
The German describes the month as “good for both the team and Timo”.
– He was always in the right place with his main goals. He’s not the type to make great punches in terms of big wins, he’s the one who scores crucial goals in important matches, the German believes. The Pink On.
In total, Pukki acquired 20 ponds during 2020/21. League bow leader Evan Tony, Brentford, has time for five more.
Not only is it about the goal of Timos, but his work ethic is also of the highest levels. His pressure plays, defends and works without the ball. He is a great player and we have to remember to appreciate that he plays in the yellow jersey, Farke told the newspaper.
