Zimmermann praises 'immense' Norwich City support

Norwich City defender Christoph Zimmermann says he's been taken aback by the support of the club's fans after making the move to Carrow Road from Germany this summer.

The 24-year-old has been an ever-present for the Canaries after joining from Borussia Dortmund II and was part of a defence that kept their first clean sheet of the season in the 2-0 victory over QPR in midweek.

Zimmermann posed for photographs and shook hands with supporters following the victory, and he admits playing in front of such big crowds in England is something he's relishing.

"The audience was 26,000 and if you compare that to my last season, we were happy to have 3,000!

We shouldn't take it for granted that we have this massive, immense support.

It was (going into the crowd) just some way of saying thank you and showing some appreciation for their support.

It was a night game and there were many children who were supposed to be in bed by that time! Playing in the Championship is a dream come true for me - every game is like a gift."

Zimmermann and his Norwich teammates head to Aston Villa tomorrow where they will be hoping to pick up their first away win of the campaign.
