Tim Krul excited for Newcastle reunion
The former Magpies goalkeeper will face Newcastle for the first time since leaving the club in 2017 when he lines up for Norwich tomorrow.
Speaking ahead of the clash, Krul told the Eastern Daily Press:
“It will be a little strange. I still have a lot of friends up north, my wife’s family is from there and I have a great connection with the club. It is more exciting than anything else,” he said. “I have moved on, I didn’t want to move the way I did but that is football.
“I have always had a great relationship with the Newcastle fans, they knew as well the way I left it wasn’t meant to be like that.
“When you are at a club for 10 or 11 years you want to walk out through the front door.
“Enough has been said but the fans know that. We had some great moments, some amazing results, massive ups, a couple of downs, but that is all part of being involved in football.
“Yes it was definitely one of the first fixtures I looked for when they came out in the summer.
“With Liverpool for the first game, Newcastle second and then Chelsea third it was like ‘wow’ and then Manchester City in the fifth game.
“A hard, difficult start but an exciting one as well.”
