Christos Tzolis is determined to grasp his second chance at Norwich City. 

The Greek winger was recalled from a loan spell at FC Twente in January after David Wagner deemed him good enough to make an impact during his Canaries revolution. 

Tzolis' loan spell was frustrated by injuries and limited minutes - but now he is eager to seize the moment upon his Carrow Road return. 

“I’m really happy to be back. After my injury, I came back here for my rehab," the young winger told City's matchday programme. "After the first week, I wanted to stay here – the people and the staff helped me a lot in my recovery.

“It was my first big injury in my career so far. I was pleased I was here, I had a nice time with my rehab. I went back to the Netherlands, but after the situation with the new coach and Hughesy as well, he was calling for me to come back. 

“I was waiting too long for this moment. I want to score more goals, play more games and have more minutes."

Tzolis is yet to make a start since his loan spell was cut short - but has been a consistent member of matchday squads whilst building up his fitness. 

Wagner played a major role in bringing Tzolis back to join their Chanpionship play-off push. 

After conversations with Twente, the loan was mutually terminated, allowing the Greek international to re-join their squad. 

Tzolis is now on a mission to fulfil his potential - and he believes Wagner is the coach best placed to extract it. 

“I want to improve as a player, I want to play for Norwich City. Last year, and then this year with the injury, was difficult for me but now is the time to show that I can do.

“He (David Wagner) was clear with me from the first moment, and that’s the most important thing for a player.  

“For a young player like me, to give me that confidence (is a big thing)," Tzolis said. "He wants the wingers to play more inside in the attacking third and that’s good for me because I always want to be around the box to create and score goals.  

“I have to improve a lot of things to 100 per cent suit the system and style of the coach but he has been good for me.”
