Daniel Farke shares new Norwich aim after penning fresh Carrow Road contract

Daniel Farke wants to establish Norwich in the Premier League and stop them being a yo-yo club.

The promoted Norfolk outfit have announced boss Farke has penned a new four-year contract with the club.

It ties the German coach to Carrow Road until 2025 after a second promotion as champions.

Farke’s assistant Eddie Riemer, head of performance Chris Domogalla and first team coach Christopher John have also signed fresh terms for the same period.

Now all efforts at the club owned by celebrity chef Delia Smith and husband Michael Wynn-Jones are going into keeping City up under Farke and sporting director Stuart Webber.

The last time Norwich got promoted they finished bottom in 2020 as they were relegated for a third time in six years.

Farke,44, who joined from Borussia Dortmund in May 2017 said: “I’m absolutely over the moon and feel pretty emotional in such a moment.

“I’m unbelievably grateful for all of the trust and support.

“It is a pleasure to be allowed to continue to work on this level with such a special club and our unbelievable owners, Delia and Michael.

“I must also thank Stuart Webber for his trust and backing, my staff and players, as well as the supporters.

“We have a pretty special relationship in this club.

“Now it’s about going the next step, doing everything we can to make sure this club becomes an established Premier League side.

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

When Norwich were last promoted they unsuccessfully relied heavily upon loans and frees like Patrick Roberts , Josip Drmic ,Ibrahim Amadou and Ondrej Duda as the Canaries balanced their books and upgraded their training ground.

This time they have invested a lot more in players after banking a club record £33million from Emiliano Buendia’s sale to Aston Villa.

Billy Gilmour has joined on loan from Chelsea along with fellow newboys Milot Rashica , Angus Gunn and French midfielder Pierre Lees-Melou.

Ben Gibson and Dimitris Giannoulis have been confirmed as permanent additions after clauses in their loan deals were activated.

Norwich are also chasing Bournemouth’s £12million-rated Danish midfielder Philip Billing, aged 25.

Sporting director Webber added: “Daniel and his staff have been a huge part of what we are building and to tie them down to new deals was one of our key objectives at the start of the summer.

“It’s great news for the football club.

“We’re in an uncertain world at this moment in time, so to have some stability and security at the football club is important.

“Daniel fully understands the club and what we’re about.

“He buys into all facets of what we’re doing here and has played a leading role in getting us to this position.

“We can now look forward to our plans for the season ahead, knowing that we have the future of our head coach and staff secured. It’s an exciting period for us.”

Norwich start their season at home to Liverpool on August 14.

Across a four-year spell, Farke has taken charge of a total of 195 competitive games at the club and is the 12th longest-serving manager in England’s top four divisions.
