‘Keeping Messi on the bench’, ‘Whatever it costs’ – Norwich City fans react after Buendia international call up

The £1.3m that Norwich City paid to Getafe to land Argentinian winger Emiliano Buendia has proved to be nothing short of a bargain.

His class was evident from Day 1 at Carrow Road and it is class that has continued to shine through brightly across all three of his seasons at the Canaries.

That consistency has seen the exciting attacker land his first full Argentina cap:

24-year-old Buendia has made 121 appearances for Norwich since signing for the East Anglian side scoring 24 goals and providing 42 assists.

Those headline figures of 66 goal contributions mean that he contributes in some way to Norwich’s scoring every 1.8 games or every 162-or-so minutes.

What has surely twisted the Argentinian selectors’ arms are his displays for Norwich City this season as the Canaries stormed the Sky Bet Championship and bounced back to the Premier League as champions.

This season Buendia has been simply unstoppable at times. Across 41 Championship games, the newly-selected Argentine international scored 15 goals and created 17 assists for the Canaries.
