Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke was pleased with Jordan Rhodes’ debut for the club on Tuesday.
Rhodes played the entire second-half of Norwich’s 3-1 friendly win over Lincoln City.
The Scottish international signed for the club earlier that day, arriving on a season-long loan from Sheffield Wednesday.
Rhodes flicked the ball on for Louis Thompson to race clear and round the goalkeeper before firing the ball into an empty net for Norwich’s third.
Kenny McLean and Onel Hernandez scored the other goals for Norwich on the night.
Speaking to The Pink’Un, Farke said this about Rhodes’ performance
We got the feeling he is in good shape because he has been with Sheffield for the past two weeks so we wanted to bring him onto the pitch with the rest of the lads as soon as possible. He needs to get used to our style and our game.
I was pretty pleased with his first 45 minutes. You could see the way he used his body he is an experienced player at this level. He had some good movements in the box and there was key link up for the third goal.
Quality is defined by performance over the long term. Look at his status, he is there with nearly 100 goals in 240 Championship games.
That means he scores in nearly every second game. His character is brilliant as well. He was unbelievably desperate to come to us and when you speak to him you will see he is a nice lad who totally fits our group.
Rhodes scored five goals in the Championship for Sheffield Wednesday last season, including one against Norwich at Carrow Road.
