Leeds United boss Daniel Farke says he has not really thought much about his return to his former club Norwich City.
The German coach was a faithful servant to the Canaries, he was there from 2017 to 2021. During his four years at the club he won the EFL Championship twice, securing promotion to the Premier League for the club.
This weekend will be the first time he returns to face his old club since 2021. Farke says he’s treating it as a normal game:
“I haven’t thought too much about it. You prepare for a normal game, it was some time ago since I was there. There is some players there but they play a different way. It’s more or less normal stuff, I haven’t thought about my situation.”
The 46-year old also added that his time at the club will always remain special to him:
There are so many memories, it will always have a place in my heart. I met many great people and I was grateful for such a successful time. The first promotion they had never had such a points tally. We got promoted again with an even better season with 97 points. I will always be grateful that I played a part in this process. Nothing lasts forever and right now it’s up to us to travel there and win the points, I’m not thinking about my memories. It’s a difficult ground and a difficult side who will be up there in the top positions.”
