Norwich City have fired head coach Daniel Farke just hours after the win against Brentford.

The Canaries registered their first win in the Premier League this season after beating Brentford 2-1 at Brentford Community Stadium. Mathias Normann and Teemu Pukki scored the goals for the visitors in the first half.

Nonetheless, Norwich are still at the bottom of the table after losing 8 times this season.

Norwich have now decided to part ways with Farke, who led them to the Championship title last season.

The Canaries’ sporting director Stuart Webber commented on Farke’s dismissal (h/t Team Talk): 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.”

Eddie Howe turns up for Newcastle’s United game against Brighton

According to Four Four TwoEddie Howe was present at Amex Stadium during Newcastle United‘s Premier League game against Brighton amid the speculations on a move to St. James Park.

The Magpies’ new owners have reportedly reached an agreement with Howe over new managerial role, which has been vacant since Steve Bruce’s departure.

The 43-year-old has been without a job since leaving Bournemouth last year.

The Magpies are still the second bottom club in the Premier League table, having not picked up a single win in 11 games.
