Man Utd defender De Laet urges Norwich to go on attack

Manchester United defender Ritchie De Laet has urged Norwich City to adopt an attacking policy.

De Laet has signed for the Canaries on-loan.

He told skysports.com: "Not everybody can put together back-to-back promotions, which is quite special in itself, and they've got the winning mentality now, so everyone is looking forward to being in the big time again.

"It will be very refreshing to see them back in the Premier League because they have played some great football over the past couple of seasons and they definitely won't look out of place in the top flight.

"There is a really young and energetic theme running through the squad here, so we might catch some teams by surprise and hopefully we can get some early points on the board.

"The football that they played last season was tremendous at times and not every club can get out of the Championship by that way, but they did it in style.

"They did it the right way in my book and hopefully we can continue that style of play in the Premier League because I've played against them and it isn't easy to stop them."
