Norwich City sack Daniel Farke despite win leaving Newcastle United as only club without a victory

Norwich City have sacked Daniel Farke.

This despite only hours earlier Farke declaring it was a ‘big relief’ after seeing his Norwich team win their first Premier League game of the season.

One of those ironic moments no doubt, when a victory was the last thing the Canaries wanted, as clearly pre-match they had decided to sack Daniel Farke after this latest ‘defeat’ at Brentford.

The surprise (especially for Norwich…) win lifted Farke and his players off the bottom of the table, at least temporarily.

A point for Newcastle at Brighton, sending the East Anglian club back to rock bottom.

Interesting to see who they (clearly) have lined up as a replacement for Daniel Farke.

Newcastle United have now set a club record, the only time in entire NUFC history to start the season with no wins in the first eleven league matches.

United now the only PL club without a win this season….

Norwich City official statement:

‘Norwich City can confirm that head coach Daniel Farke has left the club with immediate effect.

Daniel departs Carrow Road having overseen 208 competitive games at the helm across a four-and-a-half-year spell.

He joined the club in the summer of 2017, guiding City to a 14th-place finish in the Sky Bet Championship in his opening season in England.

The 2018/19 season was a memorable one, as Daniel’s side claimed the Championship title and promotion to the Premier League.

After a season in the Premier League, a second Championship league title followed in the 2020/21 campaign, as City accumulated a club record 97 points, securing a return to the top-flight at the first attempt.

Backroom staff members Eddie Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John have all also left the club.

Sporting director Stuart Webber said: “In continuing to demand the very best for our football club, this decision was not an easy one.

“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.”

The club will issue a further update on its first team staff in due course.’
