Norwich fire manager after first win


Norwich has fired manager Daniel Farke after his first premier league win since the club returned to top-flight football in the summer.

They recorded their first win against Brentford on Saturday after Mathias Normann and Teemu Pukki found the net in the first half.

The game ended 2-1.

Even though he was finally able to break that win-less streak, Farke is now no longer in charge.

The German had been at Carrow Road for more than four years, having joined Norwich in the summer of 2017, after leaving his role as head coach at Borussia Dortmund II.

“In continuing to demand the very best for our football club, this decision was not an easy one,” Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber said in a statement.

“I know how determined Daniel and his staff were to succeed at this level, but we feel that now is the right time for a change to give ourselves the best opportunity of retaining our Premier League status.

“All at Norwich City should be forever grateful to Daniel and his staff for the significant role they have played in our journey. They helped deliver two Championship titles, many memorable moments and they all fully bought into our philosophy and what it means to be part of this football club.

“Daniel and his staff will always be welcome back here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their hard work and wish them well for the future.

“It’s important that we now look forward. We have 27 league games remaining and a long way to go in the current season. We know we have the ability within our playing squad and staff to start picking up points and climbing the league table.”

So far, the club has not hinted on the successor to Farke as manager.
