Daniel Farke spoke of it being a big day for him and Norwich City on Saturday, only to be summoned to a meeting immediately after his duties with the media to find out that he had been fired.
Norwich felt they couldn’t wait if they wanted a chance to stay, despite securing their first Premier League win of the season and their first away from home since 23 November 2019. Sporting director Stuart Webber was present at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Names tied to the job last night included Swansea manager Russell Martin and Enrico Maassen, the head coach of Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team, from whom Norwich hired Farke in 2017.

Mathias Normann’s good solo shot sparked the celebrations of all his teammates from the Canary Islands
Regular firefighters with records of surviving relegation, such as Sam Allardyce and Roy Hodgson, are also being considered, but suggestions that Frank Lampard, who has not trained since losing his job at Chelsea last season, are said to be interested in work, they are said to be spacious.

Farke had criticized the club’s activity in the transfer window, over which he had limited influence, and was not happy that they sold their best player, Emiliano Buendia, to Aston Villa for £ 33 million in the summer. As a self-funded club, Norwich felt they couldn’t turn down that offer.
Head of development Steve Weaver is expected to take over the first team until a replacement is confirmed.
Norwich wants to make an appointment before Southampton’s visit to Carrow Road on Saturday weekdays. Forward Teemu Pukki, speaking after Saturday’s 2-1 win as his coach was losing his job in another part of the stadium, said: ‘The first half was good on our part, the second half was a fight. They made it difficult but we deserved it.
“It was not football that we wanted to play, but we got the victory. There were many happy faces in the dressing room. It’s good to start from here now. ‘
Norwich supporters enjoyed the game as they chanted, ‘What the fuck must you be? We are wining ‘.
It started with Mathias Normann scoring a solo goal after six minutes. Tim Krul made a series of super saves throughout and Pukki won a penalty after a foul by Charlie Goode and then scored it himself. Brentford made it 2-1 through Rico Henry, but Norwich held on.
Norwich fans had added 5,172 miles to their car odometers since they last saw their team win in the Premier League. That would be enough to get them to Paris and back six times, or Brussels and back eight times. They could even drive to Moscow and back, with enough reserve to get to Kiev.
It has been a remarkably long road to this victory at Brentford and whoever takes over from Farke will face an equally arduous journey if they are to survive relegation this season.
