City centre-back stops by summer football session
Christoph Zimmermann was in attendance at the latest Community Sports Foundation’s (CSF) Summer Soccer School today.
The children were treated to a visit from City’s tall German centre-back as he joined in on one of their sessions and posed for photos, as well as signing plenty of autographs.
“It’s nice to sometimes take a step back from what you are doing every day and have these kinds of things to do.” said Zimmermann.
“It makes you realise what a privileged position we are in. It just takes some words and a couple of autographs to put a smile on their faces.”
Paul Loveday CSF Community Sports Coach said: “We run the CSF Soccer Schools during the half-terms and in the six-week summer holidays.
“The kids will come and have five days of football coaching, lots of fun and they get to meet Norwich City footballers which is brilliant for them.
“We’ve two of three of the Norwich fans in the group say: ‘he’s amazing’ and they’ve all said how lovely he [Christoph] is.
“It’s fabulous for the kids.”
