As He Makes His Debut For Norwich City Daniel Farke Praises Billy Gilmour For Settling In Swiftly

Billy Gilmour has been lauded by Daniel Farke for adapting into life at Norwich City fast after making his debut just hours after attending his first training session.
The Chelsea loanee, who moved to Carrow Road for a season a fortnight ago, has just recently linked up with his new teammates after taking some time off following his participation in Euro 2020 with Scotland.
The 20-year-old only had time to train on Friday morning before being put into action against King’s Lynn Town later that day.
Billy Gilmour made his Norwich debut in the club’s pre-season triumph over King’s Lynn Town. During his 45-minute cameo, he showed flashes of quality as the Canaries won 3-1 in the Norfolk derby, earning Farke’s praise.
‘Billy is a terrific guy; he was just involved in testing yesterday [Thursday] and had his first training session with the team this morning,’ Farke said on the club’s official website.
‘We have a sense it’s occasionally a good idea to submerge the lads in cold water.’
‘That was a challenge for him, but he showed some promising signs.’
He arrived with a full workload, so it was critical for him to gain a sense of the situation right once.
‘It’s particularly essential for Milot, who has had a difficult summer.’
‘He’s working on his fitness and it was vital for him to have his first minutes,’ Canaries manager Daniel Farke said of Gilmour, who has just recently joined the club. The Scotland midfielder only took part in his first Norwich training session on Friday after impressing at the Euros with his country until they fell out in the group stages.
Farke’s time as Tuchel’s reserve coach at Borussia Dortmund appears to have swayed the contract in Norwich’s favor, with Gilmour assisting the newly promoted team on their return to the Premier League.
‘We are particularly glad to have brought Billy in,’ Farke said earlier this month, after Emiliano Buendia, a midfielder, left for Aston Villa for PS33 million in June.
‘We owe a huge thank you to Chelsea and everyone involved in bringing this arrangement to fruition.’
I believe it helps that we have demonstrated in the past that young players with potential are well cared for here at Norwich City.
‘We’re thrilled to have Billy on board because we’ve lost a few players in that area.’
We’re wanting to expand our possibilities, particularly in the center of the park, and Billy is a good fit for that.
‘We got the sensation that he can help us a lot with his ability to link the play, his technical talents, and also his work against the ball,’ the 20-year-old said of his desire to acquire regular first-team experience with the Canaries.
He is the ideal fit for us not only in terms of football, but also in terms of character.
‘He will assist us in meeting our objectives.’
It’s important to remember that he’s still a very young man who hasn’t played on a regular basis at this level.
We need to give him some time and space to develop and find his rhythm last season.’ Gilmour appeared in 11 Premier League games for Chelsea last season, starting three of them.
Tuchel’s side lost the FA Cup to Leicester but beat Manchester City to win the Champions League. The former Rangers junior player was an unused substitute in both the FA Cup and Champions League finals.
