Daniel Farke sacked by Norwich after first Premier League win of the season against Brentford

Daniel Farke was sacked by Norwich after Saturday’s 2-1 win at Brentford.

It was Norwich’s first league win of the season, following a 10-game winless streak.

But, with the newly promoted side at the bottom of the table and five points safe after 11 games, the decision has been made to part ways with Farke as Norwich fights for the survival of the Premier League.

Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber explained the move in a statement posted on the club’s website: “As we continue to demand the best for our football club, this decision has not been easy.

“I know how determined Daniel and his team were to be successful at this level, but we believe the time has come for a change to give us the best opportunity to maintain our Premier League status.

“Everyone in Norwich City should be eternally grateful to Daniel and his staff for the important role they played in our trip. They helped win two league titles, many memorable moments and they all fully embraced our philosophy and what it means to be a part of this football club. “

Farke, who was named Norwich head coach in 2017, has helped the club get promoted to the Premier League twice but has never been able to keep the Canaries in the top spot.

Norwich’s next game will be against Southampton at Carrow Road on November 20 after the international break.

Speaking ahead of his sacking, Farke said: “We are finally here. It’s been a long wait and after a tough start it’s been great to get the first win under our belt. It’s great for mood, confidence, and self-confidence. The guys deserve to have that sense of victory in the locker room.

“There is no substitute for self-confidence wins and let’s be honest, these are all young boys. I think he’s the youngest in Premier League XI so it’s not easy for them. Everyone criticizes them so they deserve it. We have a great team spirit.

“Last season we won game after game, but the fans couldn’t celebrate with us, so for them too, it’s a big party. They must have been very patient. Everyone was so committed today to bring the three points home.

“Every game at this level is about great margins, but the key today was getting back to our DNA, keeping the ball and making short passes. We had to defend in the second half but we still had the chance to score a third in Game 2. “
