Norwich City defender Bali Mumba was more than happy with his impact after coming on as a substitute against Swansea City on Saturday afternoon, describing it as a great opportunity.
The young defender replaced Jacob Sorensen at left-back in the 67th minute and made his impact by setting up Emi Buendia’s assist for Marco Stiepermann in the 83rd minute.
Speaking on the chance given to him by head coach Daniel Farke, Mumba says he knew he had to showcase his skillset after patiently waiting for the opportunity.
“It was great for me, obviously I’ve been waiting a long time to get my chance, my opportunity and when it came I thought it was a great time to get it and show what I can do.
“I just used my pace and my ability on the ball, creating chances, just being a problem to the opposition really. That’s all I thought.”
Asked about his take on how to better impact the game, Mumba revealed advice given to him from the City boss before coming on.
“The boss told me when I get on the ball to be positive because one of their players isn’t very good defensively.
“He thought it was a great opportunity to put on an attacking full-back to just cause trouble and create chances for the team.”
