Norwich midfielder Fer wears "Bouncer" nickname with pride

Norwich City midfielder Leroy Fer is happy with his nickname.

Fer - known as "The Bouncer" - takes no prisoners when it comes to football.

Canaries star Fer, 23, said : "A coach gave me the nickname when I was a boy in Holland because I was big and pushed everybody around.

"I am very religious and, as a boy, I went to church regularly with my family. It's more difficult now, but I still go whenever I can.

"On the pitch, though, I am very tough and I love tackling. I love breaking the play up and winning the ball."
