Norwich City fans have taken to Twitter to laud their 18-year-old right back Max Aarons, after the teenager’s stunning assist for Teemu Pukki’s second goal in the 4-0 demolition of Sheffield Wednesday saw them reach the summit of the Championship.
The former Luton Town player has caught the eye throughout the Canaries’ impressive season so far, but it was his assist against the Owls at the weekend that has made people sit up and take notice.

The England Under-19 international, cousin of Newcastle’s Rolando Aarons, made Pukki’s second goal almost entirely on his own, playing two quick one-twos with his teammates and running the length of the pitch in the process before squaring the ball to the Finland international.
Naturally, fans of Daniel Farke’s side have wasted no time in lauding their prospect online, and are perhaps surprised themselves at the wonderkid’s instant impact in the first team having only just been promoted from the youth ranks.
Let’s take a look at some of the best tweets…

Max Aarons is the best right back we’ve had since Ian Culverhouse. FACT. #ncfc

Thanks Chris. Our manager is rather special, seems to be getting the best out of a few players who’ve not lived up to expectations elsewhere. We’d like to keep him a secret too. (Though best of all is Max Aarons – born this century but you’d never know it)

Pace and movement – beautifully worked. And Max Aarons? The kid is special.
