Daniel Farke had joined Norwich from German club Borussia Dortmund back in May 2017 and lead Norwich to a 14th-place finish in the Sky Bet Championship in his first season with the Canaries.

The next season, Farke and his team of staff won their first Championship title with Norwich in 2018/19, as they earned 94 points in the English second tier league. Norwich were relegated from the Premier League in 2019, but bounced back to the top flight in the first try.

During the course of the 2020/21 EFL Championship campaign, Farke’s Norwich side sweeped the league title comfortably with a record-breaking 97 points.

Across a four-year spell at the club, Farke has taken charge of a total of 195 competitive games for the Canaries and is currently 12th in the list of longest-serving managers across England’s top four divisions.

It’s an exciting period for us with a view to what comes next.” Webber added, heaping praise on Farke and what he brings to the club.
