Christos Tzolis - Club Brugge


Dutch Eagle

Recommended Posts

The Golden Boy of PAOK moved to Norwich City for a record fee (€ 13,5 mil. including bonusses). Was announced last Thursday and was in the squad but stayed on the bench (also as EPL allows only 3 subs where other countries and UEFA allow 5).

Good luck, Christo!

Started his first Premier League game in over 2 months today against Newcastle. He did some nice things, set up a good chance which was fluffed, as well as having a few attempts on goal.

He was subbed off at half-time and reading around most Norwich fans seems to think he should have been given the 2nd half and the manager pulled the trigger too early.

Tzolis will be the next Greek in the eredivisie. After consulting Limnios he decided to be loaned to FC Twente. Would rather have seen him at Feyenoord. Not only just to see him live as I live about 6 km from De Kuip but also because Feyenoord play GS EL and FC Twente might not even qualify for GS ECL as they are not seeded in PO if they even reach that PO.

Tzolis was subbed on in the 58th minute over the weekend but only lasted 8 minutes before injurying his knee and being subbed off. It isn't as serious as it could have been and he is out for 2 months. Basically he will return after the world cup break.

According to reports from both English and Greek media, it seems Norwich are trying to cut his loan short and get him back to England. Norwich's new manager David Wagner has apparently asked for Tzolis to return to the club as he wants to use him for the 2nd half of the season.

Hopefully his return means he gets some consistent minutes under his belt and he is able to develop into the player we all want him to be.

Tzolis scores his first goal since returning to Norwich. He came off the bench in the 72nd minute and scored in the 94th minute, completing the scoring in a 3-1 win for his side.

Interesting reading some comments from his manager post game, he seems to believe in Tzolis which is only beneficial for him. I will post them below. Also should be noted Giannoulis started and played 76 minutes before being subbed off.

Tzolis on his way to Fortuna Dusseldorf in Germany's 2nd tier for this season. Agreement is a one-year loan with an obligation to buy if they seal promotion to the Bundesliga. The buy-out clause sits at 6milion Euros, reportedly. 

Germany should've been his first move when leaving PAOK, but he chose the bright lights of the Premier League which has traditionally been tough for Greek players to acclimatize to especially at such a young age.

Hopefully his development hasn't been stunted by the previous 2 years and he can continue to grow and become the player he is capable of being.
