Daniel Farke: Mario Vrančić a great fit for Norwich

8 June 2017

DANIEL Farke believes Mario Vrančić represents another seamless addition to Norwich City's armoury ahead of the 2017-18 Sky Bet Championship season.

The Bosnian international midfielder is primed to join from SV Darmstadt 98, with City's new Head Coach having a firm understanding of the type of man he is bringing in.

"I've followed Mario's path for several years," Farke told

"He played in Paderborn, the city where I come from. I'm really glad to work with him as he's a very good character.

"He's a really nice and kind guy too. I want players who give all their passion and emotions for our team and who always want to learn.

"I want players who really want to be at Norwich and want to do the things we're going to do. Mario is perfect for that and is a very good fit for us." 

Farke is excited by what Vrančić can offer his side on the field in the next campaign, pointing to a number of key strengths he possesses.

"Mario is an intelligent player and technically is very good," the 40-year-old added.

"He has a brilliant left foot and is very good with set-pieces. He's able to assist and able to score.

"He will bring a lot of creativity and special moments to the team. I'm really looking forward to working with such a smart and technical player."
