Stefanovic determined to stay and help City back

Dejan Stefanovic is counting on playing his full part in helping Norwich City back to the Championship.
Dejan Stefanovic is counting on playing his full part in helping Norwich City back to the Championship.
Dejan Stefanovic is hoping for the chance to repay Norwich City after being given the green light to return to football.

The 34-year-old Serbian damaged cruciate knee ligaments in November, having made just 12 appearances for the Canaries since a summer move from Fulham.

In his absence City plunged to relegation. But the centre-back has been cleared to join pre-season training on July 2 - and is counting on playing his full part in helping the club back to the Championship.

“I visited the specialist in London on Tuesday and he gave me the green light to start playing again, so I''m looking forward to pre-season,” he said. “It has been a very difficult time - to be out for seven months, especially with the team struggling and the fact I couldn''t help. I have done a lot of work in the gym, I am a mentally strong person and I am looking forward to a new challenge.”

That challenge, he hopes, will be League One football after telling City boss Bryan Gunn he wants to stay and see out his contract.

Though it will be Gunn''s call, moving on has not been on the defender''s mind - despite relegation activating an automatic pay cut.

“For the last seven months I have only had in my mind to be fit for pre-season,” he said. “I''m not even thinking about other clubs.

“I have a contract here for another year. It all depends on Gunny and what he wants to do. I will have a chat with him in the next few weeks and we will wait and see. But I''m not a person who likes to move around and I would like to stay to help this club get back to the Championship.

“Everyone needs to take responsibility for what happened last season. I would like to repay this club by helping it move forward again - as simple as that.”

Stefanovic does not flinch at the prospect of playing third tier football next season - although he admits to not reading up on the club''s new destinations.

“Not at all,” said Stefanovic. “I''ve played 19 years at the top levels and when I signed for Norwich I thought we would be challenging for the Premier League, top six maybe last season and the new season push on, but things do not always go the way you plan and unfortunately we were relegated.

“But that is life in football and this club, its facilities, supporters - as I''ve said many times - it should be playing in the Premier League. Who knows, maybe again one day.

“As a professional footballer, it doesn''t matter if you''re playing in front of 25,000 people or 5,000, you play for this club and you have to take responsibility to play well for the club.

“It is harder to play in front of 2,000 fans of course, but the players need to deal with that.”

Whatever awaits, Stefanovic believes Norwich need to aim for an immediate return to the Championship.

“It is much easier to come back straight away,” he said. “Look at what Leicester did - it is not always possible but it is the best way.

“After that it gets more and more difficult the second, third, fourth years to come back because players are going to want to play at a higher level and you try to sign more of the kind of players for this league.

“If we keep most of the players here and add a couple more, this club should have a good chance.”

Although he is yet to play under City''s management trio of Gunn, Ian Butterworth and Ian Crook, he believes the summer will be perfect for them to make their mark.

“They need a little bit of time as well,” said Stefanovic. “This is the best scenario for them, they can get the players they want, spend some time with them and go from there.

“They have got plenty of time to be with the players who want to play for this club in this league and it will be much easier for Gunny as well.

“He is a good person and he communicates well with the players. His first six months in the job will have been a good learning curve and now he has got the time to plan, work out the players he wants to get in and get to know them all.”

Completely agree Bristol, both these guys are ruining the message board with their pretentious drivel.

So im ruining the forum with a genuine sourced news article that I didnt realise had been posted already?  For gods sake, I made an innocent mistake, lets demonise somebody for daring to accidently duplicate a post. How pathetic, why dont we just become like Saudi Arabia and start cutting off the typing fingers of people that dare to perpetrate such hideous crimes.

How long did it take you to realise that it had been posted already? Surely the title of the article would have been enough, you should maybe go to brainsavers.

Ok I''ve thought about it, and have decided to cut my own fingers off. I realise that posting a duplicate thread is really an indication of how much of a drain I have become on society.

I have also realised that some people truly are complete t*ts.

Lighten up Ryan, i think he was joking about you, although CT i agree Undertaker. Bristol Canary and Canary tom should post more so we have to read less of the drivel.

Yes, duplicate posts are annoying, but in this case I can see why you didn''t spot the other one.

Believe it or not, I quite like you and CT, you are both opinonated and have some interesting views. But you both seem intent on out-doing everyone else and starting as many threads as possible, just so people don''t forget about you. I have to admit that CT is much worse than you at this, he''s an irritant and loves the attention which people pour over him.

I''m with you Ryan...to anyone with a brain it was obviously an innocent mistake.  People with nothing better to do...how sad.  Do you know anything about the Saudi constitution?  Perhaps they could busy themselves with drafting a constitution for the UK, instead of dribbling all over this post.

And I like you too Undertaker [W]

I am opiniated, but really dont start many threads so dont really get your point there. In fact this is probably the only one on the front page now! I genuinely thought that I was posting a new piece of news, which surely beats that normal mundane unsourced and fabricated drivel?

Thanks, I think that most of them are just on a wind up. I dont know much about the Saudi constitution to be honest, but I am often told that they dish out some pretty hefty punishments for petty crime.... e.g. cutting the hands off of people for stealing a loaf of bread.... hence my comparison!
