Former Norwich City keeper Rob Green insists his Carrow Road return must be all business this weekend, with Leeds United aiming to put one over the Canaries in Saturday's Championship test.

Green sat out the recent EFL Cup penalty shoot-out win over his old club but has been head coach Garry Monk's first-choice in the league since arriving on a free transfer from QPR in the summer. The 36-year-old spent a decade in the first team set-up at Norwich and was a key figure in the side that earned promotion to the Premier League in 2003.

Green also forced his way into the England picture before moving to West Ham for a reported £2m in 2006 and the experienced stopper revealed he still has a soft spot for his first club.

'Norwich is a great club and a place where I still have a lot of friends, I look forward to going back there again,' he said. 'I left Norwich ten years ago, a week in football is a long time, so it feels like a lifetime ago now.

'It has all been positive recently, the head coach has tried to instill an identity and culture within the club. When you are winning games, that gets reafirrmed and the belief grows, it is great for everyone involved. We want to continue now over the next month and beyond, we have some tough fixtures, but we are in good spirits.
