Eddie Riemer enjoying his Norwich City adventure

2 August 2017

Eddie Riemer says it's been a whirlwind start to life for him at Norwich City with the Sky Bet Championship season now looming ever larger on the horizon.

The Assistant Head Coach followed Daniel Farke to Carrow Road in May, taking on a similar position to the one he had previously held at Borussia Dortmund II.

Speaking to Norwich City TV during the Club's pre-season tour of Germany, Riemer said: "It's been unbelievably busy so the time passes quickly.

"In a typical week for the assistant coach, I'll talk to Daniel about the training sessions with the team. I'll help to plan the content of the sessions and support him where I can.

"You need closeness and trust to be able to work together. In this business it's important to know what you all want."

Offering further details on his relationship with Farke, the former defender added: "I was a player in the local leagues and was thinking about finishing with playing football.

"Then I got to know Daniel and he asked me to join his team and carry on. I was a player for several years working for him, getting to know how he acts and how he works.

"After that I had an opportunity to join his team as a coach before he asked me if I would join Borussia Dortmund. I didn't have to think long about that.

"I quit my job as a mechanical engineer to join him. It was a real adventure and now we're here in Norwich, which is great."
