Daniel Farke is on the verge of signing a new contract extension with Norwich City reports the Daily Telegraph.
The Canaries’ Head Coach is out of contract in the summer but according to this report, is moving closer and closer to signing a new two and a half year extension, along with his First Team Assistant, Eddie Riemer.
The turnaround in Norwich City’s fortunes this season have come after a first season in England for Farke that was distinctly underwhelming. The format was the same and the football was possession based, just as it is now but the difference in the speed that the game is played at is breathtaking.
Clearly, there was a need for players to adapt and get to grips with the passing accuracy and speed of thought required to play this brand of exciting football, first seen at Barcelona by Pep Guardiola.
When they were appointed, I remember Eddie Riemer saying that Farke “likes to play football like Pep” although it’s only this season that we’ve seen it all click into place.
Farke has given youth it’s chance, via either necessity or design it matters not because the likes of Ben Godfrey, Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell have all held onto their place in the team, even when more experienced players are available.
This is excellent news, although let’s not get too carried away until he actually signs.
It’s another big step in the right direction though.
