Farke’s dismissal comes after Norwich beat Brentford 2-1 to secure their first Premier League victory of the season. Farke was informed of his dismissal after he had completed his media duties after the victory at Brentford. Assistant head coach Edmund Riemer, first team coach Christopher John and head of performance Chris Domogalla have also been dismissed immediately too.
It has be understood in reports that head of development Steve Weaver will be looking after the first-team squad until a new head coach is appointed. Norwich hope to have an appointment in place before they host Southampton at Carrow Road on November 20 which is after the international break.
They currently sit 19th in the Premier League table, having only gathered five points from their opening 11 games. Farke’s side had scored less and conceded more goals than any other tea him in the premier league this season, and currently have a goal difference of -21.A Norwich statement released said: “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.”Backroom staff members Eddie Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John have all also left the club due to Farke dismissal.”The club will issue a further update on its first team staff in due course.
Sporting director Stuart Webber added: “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.” On Sunday, Farke added: “We, and by that I mean our coaching team truly had a great time at Norwich City, which has now come to an end. “We are leaving Norwich with great pride, because having worked for this extraordinary club for almost four and a half years means a lot to us.
Our special thanks go to the fans who have always supported the team and us and who have made the many beautiful moments in Carrow Road unforgettable. Two joint promotions to the Premier League will bind us together forever.
“Football is a short-lived business, and yet we were pretty long-lived.
We’ll meet again.”German Farke was appointed in April 2017, arriving at Norwich from Borussia Dortmund II j Germany to succeed Alex Neil. Having finished 14th position in the Championship in 2017-18, his first full season in charge, they were promoted as champions the next year.
Despite suffering immediate relegation from the Premier League in 2019-20, Farke retained the trust of the ownership, and secured another return to the Premier League, again as champions.
However, his Norwich side have given little if any indication that they can avoid another immediate relegation up to their victory at Brentford.But by that point his chance to prove that he has learned from the club’s previous Premier League experience had run out of time as he sacked immediately after the win cutting of his dreams to move the club further.
