Edmund Riemer: The possibilities at Norwich are huge

26 May 2017

NEW Norwich City Assistant Head Coach Edmund Riemer is enthusiastic about the potential of the Club after completing a switch to Carrow Road.

Riemer moved to City as part of Daniel Farke's backroom team following the latter's appointment as Head Coach, having performed a similar role at Dortmund II.

Speaking to, the 32-year-old said: "I'm really excited as our season ended a few days ago and we're really looking forward to starting here.

"We want to achieve goals, together with the squad and with the people of the city. It's a big challenge but it's a good time to come here.

"Norwich is a great club and it's a good step for us. The stadium is always full and from what I've seen the possibilities are huge. We hope we can fulfil those expectations."

Offering further detail on his relationship with Farke, which now stretches back over a number of years, Riemer added: "I was his player before, so there is a lot of trust.

"Daniel signed me as a player at Lippstadt where I played for seven years. From the first moment I knew he was a great coach and now we can say I was right!

"We came to Borussia Dortmund two years ago. I know the way he wants to play football, and know him as a person.

"I'll try to help him as much as I can."

Not content with simply winning football matches, the former Paderborn defender is targeting the successful creation of a new-look identity for the Canaries. 

"The way we play will be different to David Wagner," he explained.

"He is more Jurgen Klopp, we are more Thomas Tuchel. We are more about possession, dominance where possible and having a good defence.

"That's the way we want to play. Hopefully you will see that, because that's the goal.

"We don't want to just win the games, we want people who come to the stadium to say 'this is how Norwich City plays'. Winning is important but we want to achieve both things."
