Farke heaps praise on Norwich star returning from injury



Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke has praised the versatility of midfielder Kenny McLean after his return from injury.
McLean suffered ligament damage in the opening month of the campaign and made his return to first-team action against Portsmouth in the FA Cup last weekend.
Despite Norwich losing the game 1-0, McLean impressed in midfield and looked bright sitting in a deep-lying midfield role alongside Tom Trybull.
Speaking to The Pink’Un, Farke said:
I was not sure he was prepared for 90 minutes but I was pleased with what I saw. He didn?t get tired, he looked pretty sharp and I was happy with his performance. It is great to have him back.
He can have an impact for us in that deeper number six role but I would say he is versatile. That is not only his best position. If I am honest with Alex Tettey out as well Kenny was more or less the only option in this area of the pitch.
Kenny can definitely play this role and also a bit more like a number 10, as Marco Stiepermann has played in recent weeks. Kenny can also come inside from the wing as Todd does. He is flexible and that is one of his strengths.
McLean joined Norwich from Aberdeen in January 2018 but was loaned back to the Scottish outfit until the end of the season.
He impressed for Norwich in pre-season last summer and played his part against Birmingham and West Brom in the Championship in August, before suffering his injury.
