Daniel Farke: Marco brings great flexibility

6 August 2017

The versatility of new arrival Marco Stiepermann will prove a great asset to Norwich City, says Head Coach Daniel Farke.

The 26-year-old midfielder completed his move to Carrow Road from VfL Bochum on Sunday, penning a deal until the summer of 2020.

Speaking exclusively to canaries.co.uk, Farke said: "Marco will give us many options and is at a good age.

"He's an all-rounder and a creative guy. He started his career as a number ten but last season played as a holding midfielder and in the left full-back position a lot.

"He played some matches for Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga under Jürgen Klopp. In the Bundesliga II he has played nearly 170 games and got 20 goals.

"As an all-rounder he can create but is also able to score. He will be able to cover several positions for us."

Farke also believes the 6ft2 former Germany Youth international will give another dimension to his squad, as he added: "Marco's height will help us with set-pieces.

"We've got lots of technical, passing players in central midfield. Marco is technically good as well but will give us a different option.

"When an opponent plays with long-balls or with set-pieces, he'll be good for us."
