Daniel Farke: We deserved to beat Wolfsburg

19 July 2018

Daniel Farke says his Norwich City side's ability to implement their gameplan against Wolfsburg left him feeling "pretty pleased"

City performed very well against their Bundesliga opponents and led for almost 80 minutes after Onel Hernandez's early finish.

Joshua Guilavogui equalised late on for Wolfsburg but Farke was still left delighted at his team's display.

"It’s a brilliant result for us against a German giant," said the City boss. "We were there with a really good performance in the first-half.

"We wanted either to press them really high and to drop deep and hit them with counter attacks. 

"It totally worked and I think we were totally on the front foot and had many period when we were able to control the possession.
"We were also able to create situations out of it. Also, we were pretty dangerous out of counter attacks as well and we deserved to be in the lead at half-time."
Wolfsburg made eleven changes at the break but Farke said his team still looked the more likely to add to the scoreline.
"It’s quite normal that Wolfsburg changed and brought a new team in and for us it was important that many teammates got more than just 45 minutes.
"They were a bit tired and after that the pressure from Wolfsburg increased a bit and I even got the feeling that in the second-half we were pretty close to be there with the determining goal. 
"Tom Trybull had a scene where he was pretty close to a penalty and then we conceded with five minutes to go after a set-piece situation.
"It was quite obviously a foul so normally we would talk about a win and a clean sheet but I can just praise the lads for this performance and I’m pretty pleased today."
