Daniel Farke Sacked By Norwich City Despite First League Win Of Season

Posted by

Daniel Farke, Norwich City’s head coach, has been fired just hours after his team’s first Premier League victory.

The Canaries beat Brentford 2-1, but they are still in last place in the Premier League with five points from 11 games.

Since 2017, Farke had led Norwich to promotion from the Championship on two occasions.

“We feel now is the right time for a change to give ourselves the best opportunity of retaining our Premier League status,” said sporting director Stuart Webber.

In Farke’s post-match interview with BBC Sport, he gave no indication he knew he was about to lose his job.

“We definitely have a chance [of survival],” he said. “It’s a long marathon. The longer we work together, the better we will be as a team. I can’t guarantee we’ll stay in the league but don’t write us off.”
