While their Sporting director Stuart Webber added: ‘In continuing to demand the very best for our football club, this decision was not an easy one.

‘I know how determined Daniel and his staff were to succeed at this level, but we feel that now is the right time for a change to give ourselves the best opportunity of retaining our Premier League status.

‘All at Norwich City should be forever grateful to Daniel and his staff for the significant role they have played in our journey. 

‘They helped deliver two Championship titles, many memorable moments and they all fully bought into our philosophy and what it means to be part of this football club.

‘Daniel and his staff will always be welcome back here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their hard work and wish them well for the future.

‘It’s important that we now look forward. We have 27 league games remaining and a long way to go in the current season. 

‘We know we have the ability within our playing squad and staff to start picking up points and climbing the league table.’ 

As it stands, Norwich sit 19th in the Premier League table after securing just five points from their opening 11 games of the Premier League season. 

Nevertheless, the club’s Sporting director, has said that Farke would always be welcome back to the club and thanked him for the work he had done. 

Farke joined Norwich in April 2017 when he arrived from Borussia Dortmund to replace Alex Neil.   

 As it stands, Norwich sit 19th in the Premier League table after securing just five points from their opening 11 games of the Premier League season.

Norwich finished 14th in the Championship during his first year at the club. However, the following year, they were promoted to the Premier League. 

The Canaries were immediately relegated back to the Championship but Farke retained his position as the manager and guided back up to the top-flight the following year.  

However, it seems likely that Norwich will suffer another relegation – as they have scored less and conceded more goals than any other team in the league.
