Norwich City have announced the departure of head coach Daniel Farke with immediate effect.

The German leaves shortly after Norwich had earned their first Premier League win of the season, a 2-1 success at Brentford.

Despite the victory, Norwich remain bottom of the table with five points.

The club have confirmed that Farke’s backroom staff members, Eddie Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John, have also left.

Norwich are next in action after the international break at home to Southampton on 20 November.

A Norwich statement said: “Norwich City can confirm that head coach Daniel Farke has left the club with immediate effect.

“Daniel departs Carrow Road having overseen 208 competitive games at the helm across a four-and-a-half-year spell.

“Backroom staff members Eddie Riemer, Chris Domogalla and Christopher John have all also left the club.

“The club will issue a further update on its first team staff in due course.”

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.”
