Soccer News: Farke signs a four-year extension with Norwich


Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has signed a new four-year contract that will keep him at the club until 2025.

The German arrived at Carrow Road in 2017 after departing from Borussia Dortmund and leading the Canaries in the Premier League in his second season.

Relegation followed in 2020, but the 44-year-old led his side to an immediate comeback on the first demand, as Norwich picked up 97 points on their way to the championship title last season, the second time they have been crowned champion under Farke.

“I am absolutely over the moon and feel quite excited at a time like this. I am incredibly grateful for all the trust and support, ”Farke told club media on Wednesday.

“It is a pleasure to be able to continue working at this level with such a special club and our incredible owners, Delia and Michael.”

Farke’s assistant manager Eddie Riemer, performance chief Chris Domogalla and first team manager Christopher John have also signed new terms for the same period.

Despite Emiliano Buendia’s loss to Aston Villa, Norwich have enjoyed a productive transfer window so far, perhaps thanks to Farke’s close relationship with sporting director Stuart Webber.

Farke managed to sign Werder Bremen’s Milot Rashica, center-back Ben Gibson and goalkeeper Angus Gunn, as well as signing Scottish international Billy Gilmour on loan.

“I also have to thank Stuart Webber for his trust and support, my staff and players, as well as the fans. We have a very special relationship in this club, ”Farke added.

“Now it’s about taking the next step, doing everything possible to make sure this club becomes an established Premier League team.

“We are in a much better position, both as a club and as a group, and we want to continue building something unique and special.”
