Norwich boss Daniel Farke revealed that he would like to make Norwich a permanent member of the Premier League. After guiding Norwich back to the top flight for the second time, he was rewarded with a four-year contract at the club. Norwich won the Championship during his second year at the club but was relegated the season after. They finished last season atop the standings once again with a tally of 97 points. Farke believes his side has what it takes to stay in the Premier League this season.
“Our first aim and the main aim was to always be a member of the top 26 teams in this country,” Norwich boss Daniel Farke said. “We want to play one day in the Premier League in the top 20 but if not, finish in the top 6 [of the Championship]. This was our aim and it was a big aim for a self-funding club. Right now we have achieved this consistency. We won the Championship title, played in the Premier League, win the Championship title again, and now we are heading back into the Premier League.”
“That is of course what we want, the next step is to become a really established Premier League club, we want to become a permanent member,” he added. “We are not naive, we know we aren’t fighting for the Premier League title but we want to develop the club from season to season. I’m ready to grind out everything from each and every season. If you would guarantee me right now, here is a letter and if you sign you will finish in 17th position this season, I wouldn’t sign it.”
Farke turned down the opportunity to leave the canaries when they were relegated last season. He revealed that he could not leave as he felt he owed the club.
