Borussia Moenchengladbach have announced the appointment of former Norwich City coach Daniel Farke.

The German, who took his first job in his homeland more than five years ago, has signed an agreement until 2025.

Farke spent four years at Carrow Road and enjoyed a relatively successful stint with Norwich, leading the club to two different promotions during his tenure.

However, the resources at the club were scant and could not rival the strength of the Premier League, which saw him drop in two of his Premier League seasons. Smith.

FARC appointed as manager of the Krasnodar team

However, Fark has not been without a job since he left his role on Carrow Road. He was appointed head coach of Russian club Krasnodar early in the year, but did not get the chance to manage a single match as the league was suspended due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The German ended up leaving the role in deference to the Russians’ decision and has been without a job ever since.

However, after three months of no work, the German will return home on his next adventure. The Bundesliga club has had a subpar campaign in the season that has just ended, and they will be looking to improve dramatically with FARC at the helm.

The 45-year-old impressed employers with his resume which saw him form Norwich in a team that was too good for the English Premier League and deserving of playing in the Premier League every season.

Farke was also in charge of the youth team at Borussia Dortmund for two years before moving to the Carew Road and the black and yellow youth team was a good attacking team during his tenure.

Monchengladbach statement on the appointment of the FARC

“At Daniel Farke, we have signed a manager who fits our team perfectly, and we will also follow the path we have charted for the club,” sporting director Roland Verkus said after Varkey’s appointment via the club’s website.

“We look forward to meeting and dealing with the challenges that lie ahead.”

Mönchengladbach are looking to improve dramatically and compete in the league next season after a very dismal season which saw the team occupy 10th at the table. The club decided to split from Adi Hitter for leading them to their worst result in over a decade at the end of the season.

FARC will continue to work with his former lieutenants from Norwich and Krasnodar – Edmund Reimer and Christopher John.

The 45-year-old, known for his attacking style, is hoping to spend a better time at his new club.
