Norwich City manager Daniel Farke has penned a new deal at the club. The news of his contract extension was announced officially on Thursday. He has signed a new four-year contract that will take him to 2025 at Carrow Road.


Farke was the main catalyst behind the return of Norwich City to the Premier League after just one season in the English Championship having suffered relegation from the top flight with the club last summer. He has now taken the Canaries into the Premier League two times during his four-year stay at the club till date.

On his new deal, Farke expressed delight at the support shown to him by the Norwich City owners. He’s grateful for the trust in him from the club owners. The Norwich City manager said he’s over the moon and also emotional over his contract renewal. For Farke, it is a pleasure to continue to work at Norwich City whom he described as a special club. The Norwich City manager is also elated to continue his good working relationship with club owners Delia and Michael Smith.

The immediate target for Farke at Norwich City would be to keep the club in Premier League at the second time of asking. Farke and Norwich City paid dearly for inconsistency and the lack of squad depth when the were in the top flight two seasons ago and the German would be hoping to guard against those things when the new Premier League campaign resumes in a matter of three weeks.

It would have been easy for Norwich City to sack the manager when they suffered demotion from the top flight two seasons ago but they made the difficult decision to stand by their manager and they were repaid with an instant return to the Premier League via winning the Championship title. The Canaries recorded 97 points on the way to winning the title under Farke last season.
