There is plenty to be proud of living in Norwich, The Lanes packed with independent shops, the stunning cathedral and bustling market.

But for Norwich City star Onel Hernández it is Argos in the Riverside Retail Park that he loves the most.

The 25-year-old, who is originally from Cuba, was asked for the club's official programme for Friday's match against Birmingham his thoughts on Norwich since he joined the club in January 2018.

The winger, who grew up in Germany, said: 'I love the city. I like that I live next to the stadium and next to me is a Morrisons which is good so I can buy my food.
