Daniel Farke: Norwich sack manager despite victory over Brentford

Norwich City have sacked Daniel Farke just hours after the club’s first win of the Premier League season against Brentford.

The Canaries endured a miserable start to the season, losing eight out of their first ten matches, but finally showed their quality in a 2-1 away win in west London.

Yet, that was not enough to save Farke’s job, with a decision seemingly already made ahead of kick-off, with Farke informed of his fate just hours after the game.

He leaves Carrow Road after four-and-a-half years in charge, having twice led the club to promotion to the Premier League.

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.”
