Norwich, the last classified in the English Premier League, decided to separate from their coach, German Daniel Farke, despite the first victory of the season, this Saturday against Brentford.
Farke, 45, had been with the club since 2017. He was the architect of promotion to the Premier League in 2019 and then in 2021. He had signed a new four-year contract in July.
The German is the fourth manager to be sacked this season in the English first division, after Xisco Muñoz (Watford), Steve Bruce (Newcastle) and Nuno Espírito Santo (Tottenham).
Norwich, bottom with just five points, have lost eight of the eleven games played this season in the championship. (AFP)
