Man Utd defender De Laet: Norwich spell improved my game

Manchester United defender Ritchie de Laet enjoyed his loan at Norwich City earlier this season.

The Belgium international is now back at Old Trafford.

"I learned a lot, even though I didn't play every game. I think I played about six or seven games. But just training with them, it was something different for me. I learned other tactics, I learned how another manager wants it to be," De Laet told manutd.com.

"I played six games in the Premier League and that was aim when I went to Norwich, to play as many games as I could. Obviously I got injured and couldn't play as many games as I wanted to. But I think it helped me, just training with Norwich and playing a few games in the Premier League, it helped me for my future development."
