Norwich striker Pukki: Zorniger big career influence

Norwich City striker Teemu Pukki has paid tribute to his former coach at Brondby, Alexander Zorniger.

The Finn says Zorniger took his game to a new level when they were united in Denmark.

"We got a new coach after the first two seasons. He was a tough German coach who got us in shape and changed our mentality around football. It really helped me," said Pukki.

He also says being a family man has helped his football.

"I think other players may need football to be the most important thing to them, but for me the opposite has worked really well. I think it fits me perfectly that football is not the most important thing in my life. It has made me a better player."
