After 208 competitive games it’s over for the German coach!
Daniel Farke (45) is no longer the coach of Norwich City. The English first division announced this on Saturday evening. The club had won their first game of the season in Brentford a few hours earlier with 2-1. Nevertheless, Norwich remains bottom of the Premier League table.
The German had coached the England club since the summer of 2017. Before that, he was coach of Borussia Dortmund’s second team for a good two years. His staff of Eddie Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John is also leaving the club.
Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber said in a club release: “We believe that now is the right time to make a change to ensure we have the best possible chance of staying in the Premier League.” Farke and his coaching team are grateful for that significant role they would have played in the club’s journey.
According to “The Athletic” he was informed of his end after the press conference after the game.
Before that he had said: “We are finally here. After a difficult start, it’s great to have finally achieved your first win. This is great for your mood, confidence, and confidence. The boys deserve to have that feeling of victory back. “
Farke took over Norwich in the 2017/18 season in the second division and rose with them first in the Premier League, then down again – and finally up again!
Now, at least for Farke, the ascent and descent is coming to an end – and maybe one day he’ll be on the sidelines in the Bundesliga …
