The Canaries have signed five senior players this summer, however, none of them are central defenders. Sam Byram was the only defensive signing made by Norwich this summer, however, the 25-year-old is a right-back.
Norwich City’s defence has been less than stable during pre-season. Indeed, Christoph Zimmermann missed the entire summer programme and is also set to miss the beginning of the Premier League.
Meanwhile, Ben Godfrey and Grant Hanley have both missed various games throughout pre-season.
As you can imagine, the fans below seemed to be quite disappointed with the news that Klose will be missing for tomorrow’s game.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Carrow Road faithful after the announcement from Farke in his pre-match press conference:
They’re gonna have a field day against Hanley

Timm Klose’s injury is worrying me, only 2 centre halves fit for the first week is squeaky! #ncfc
