City announce new coaching structure

23 June 2017

City Head Coach Daniel Farke will meet his players for the first time on Monday as the Canaries start their pre-season preparations ahead of the 2017-18 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Daniel will be joined by his Assistant Head Coach Edmund Riemer, while fellow Germans Christian Flüthmann and Chris Domogalla are also joining City’s coaching staff from Borussia Dortmund.

Flüthmann joins as First Team Coach from BVB, where he worked in their youth system. His role will combine coaching with technical analysis and he will also oversee the performance analysis team at Colney.

Domogalla, pictured above with Farke and Riemer, will become Head of Sports Science, and he will oversee the sports science, medical and nutritional areas of the football department.

In addition, Frankie McAvoy and Dean Kiely will remain with the Club in their roles as First Team Coach and Head Goalkeeping Coach respectively.

Norwich City Sporting Director Stuart Webber commented: “I’m delighted that we now have the new Colney team confirmed and together in time for the start of pre-season. It gives us a good blend of British and foreign coaches and staff and we have some good skill-sets and experience across all the departments.

“We’re really pleased to welcome Christian and Chris on board who have worked with Daniel and Edmund during their time at Dortmund. Christian, as well as being on the training pitch, will also work with our established performance analysis team headed by Lee Dunn, who do an excellent job in team preparations around matches. Chris Domogalla will bring together the disciplines of fitness, medicine and nutrition at Colney.

“We’re also delighted to say that Frankie and Dean are staying with us, which offers some continuity as well as great experience in the game. Frankie will continue to help bridge the link for the Club’s younger players making the transition between the Academy and first-team environment – having supported the U23s at matches last season and also in his previous roles at Hamilton.

“Dean is a vastly experienced coach working with a great pedigree and reputation in the game and we’re pleased to have him as part of our team.”
