Norwich defender Bassong reflects on 'dream season' after gaining TWO promotions

Norwich City defender Sebastien Bassong was reveling in a strange and unique achievement he earned this campaign.

The Frenchman won promotion from the Championship to the Premier League with two different clubs in the same season.

The Norwich centre-back spent his initial part of the season on-loan at Watford after finding himself out of favour at Carrow Road.

He played 11 games for the Hornets, who finished the season as runners-up, before being recalled when manager Alex Neil arrived in Norfolk in January. Bassong was a key figure in Norwich's run to the promotion play-off final which eventuated in a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough at Wembley on Monday.

He said: "Overall it has been a dream season.

"I played for Watford and they got promoted. I played for Norwich and they got promoted as well, so I have got two medals. I need to go and get my medal from Watford now. It's all about me! But you wouldn't have said that at the start of the season."
