Daniel Farke has claimed that Norwich City is the right club for him right now at the moment and the German manager went on to claim that he has no career plan in football.
He said: “I had no career plan in football, and I still don’t. I never think ‘in five years I want to be there, or somewhere else’. For me, it’s not about looking for a big-money move, or looking for the next step.”
“I am at exactly the right place, I love being here and I wouldn’t want to swap with any other coach in world football. I’m totally happy to be allowed to be responsible for this wonderful club. It is a great honour.” (Source: Pink Un)
The 42-year-old has claimed that being successful with Norwich can be better than managing some of Europe’s top clubs.
He said: “To be successful with a club like Norwich can be more pleasing than being a coach of Barcelona or AC Milan or Bayern Munich.” (Source: Pink Un)
Farke has been a huge success in his time as manager of the Norfolk club, winning promotion back to the Premier League following relegation in 2016.
The German manager has overseen some tough financial times at the club which saw him only spend £3.75m in this summer’s transfer window. In stark contrast, fellow promoted side Aston Villa and Sheffield United spent £133.74m and £42.75m on summer recruitments.
Farke has been outspoken on the club’s troubles in the market, saying they were paying for ‘sins of the past’.
He said: “The board and Stuart (Webber) have made it clear. We still have to pay for some sins of the past.” (Source: Pink Un)
The lack of spending hasn’t seemed to affect Farke as his Norwich side have been at their attacking best so far in the Premier League. The top-flight newcomers swept aside Newcastle United in a 3-1 win with Teemu Pukki scoring a hat-trick.
Indeed, it’s the speed at which Farke has got the Canaries settled into their attacking style of play which makes the German an impressive manager. Norwich City are in the top ten in the English top-flight for most shots taken and the most passes played this season.
Farke has shown his high-level of management and is arguably the most valuable asset at Carrow Road. With that in mind, he needs to be retained for the foreseeable future.
