If you focus on Norwich City and the strategies or players they are lining up, one of the star players on their team is Ivo Pinto who is considered to be the wild card of the team.
Having come aboard the team, it did take him some time to get adjusted to the rules of English football.
However, by the time the club had played their part in the Premiership League this season it seemed that Ivo Pinto had gotten the hang of the game. The summer series that is coming up will hold more obstacles in store for Ivo and he would have to brush up his fundamentals well in order to prove useful to his team.
Indeed, with several games to be played every season, every resource of a football club needs to be ready with the right skills and be able to take on the workload that comes up. The Championship probably has seen Ivo turn into a Renaissance man for the team. He was out of sync initially when he forayed into the team and started off with Premier League campaigns on behalf of Norwich. When he came into the team at 26 years of age, he had to face episodes like fighting against nine goals when he debuted in the game against Liverpool. After all, he had been part of the Croatian team where the position was much more secure than the insecurities that are provided in the competitive arena of English football.
It definitely takes a while for a player to get into the course of action and to be able to provide an advantage to the team that he has joined. Being a full back has definitely made the job harder for him. Again, competing in Premier League matches definitely leaves little time to practice and to get used to things before you are thrust out in the main fields.
