Teemu Pukki Claims He’s a ‘Totally Different Player’ from the One that Flopped at Celtic

Teemu Pukki Claims He’s a ‘Totally Different Player’ from the One that Flopped at Celtic

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has insisted he is a completely different player from the one which failed to make the grade at Celtic earlier in his career.

The Finland international has been in brilliant form for the Canaries this season, and scored twice in yesterday’s 4-0 demolition of Sheffield Wednesday.

The 28-year-old now has 11 goals in 18 appearances and is the Championship club’s top-scorer, with Hoops supporters scratching their heads as to why it never worked out for the forward in the Scottish Premiership.

Speaking via the Daily Record, Pukki explained: “I grew up a lot in my time in Denmark and of course, the level is a bit higher than I’ve been used to lately.

“I think two years ago I scored a lot of goals as well and last year was good too, so I think this confidence I have now is just from those times at Brondby as well.

“I think I’m a totally different player to what I was at the time when I was at Celtic.

“I’m really enjoying it here, playing for this club and also living with my family in Norwich. We as a family like it and I’m enjoying playing, so that’s all we came here for.

“It’s going well and I think the guys in the team are making it easier for me as well to be there. I’m just trying to help the team.”

As things stand, Norwich City are joint-top of the Championship table with Leeds United, and Daniel Farke’s men have been one of the biggest surprises in British football this season – along with Pukki’s outstanding form.

Pukki lasted just one season at Celtic Park, where he played 26 league matches, but was he perhaps let go a little too quickly by the Scottish Champions?
