Daniel Farke pens Norwich City contract extension!

Norwich City FC have announced that head coach Daniel Farke has officially put pen to paper on a new four-year contract with the club.

Following a second promotion to the Premier League as champions, Farke’s new contract at City will now run through to the summer of 2025.

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

Daniel Farke 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.”

Sporting director Stuart Webber added, “It’s great news for the football club. 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.”

“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 with a view to what comes next.”

Farke joined Norwich from Borussia Dortmund in May 2017, leading City to a 14th-place finish in his first season in the Sky Bet Championship.

The following season was an unforgettable one for Farke and his coaching staff, who won their first Championship title with the Canaries in 2018/19, earning 94 points in the league.

After a relegation from the Premier League City bounced back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

Over the course of the 2020/21 Championship campaign, Farke’s side romped to the league title with a record-breaking 97 points.

Across a four-year spell, Farke has now taken charge of a total of 195 competitive games at the club.

He is currently 12th in the list of longest-serving managers across England’s top four divisions.
