24 May 2021

Norwich City head coach Daniel Farke has been named the LMA Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Year for the 2020-21 season.

Farke guided the Canaries to his second Championship trophy with a record-breaking season of 97 points in England's second tier.

"I am delighted to receive the LMA Championship Manager of the Year award," he said.

"This season has seen many fantastic coaching performances across the league, so to be voted for by my fellow coaches in the division is an honour and privilege.

"I want to say thank you to them for the award, but also to our players, fans, coaches, staff and everyone involved with the club for their help in our successes this season."

In recent years, the award has been won by Marcelo Bielsa, Chris Wilder and Nuno Espirito Santo.

"Football hasn’t been the same without supporters this season, but we hope that we have been able to put a smile on the faces of Norwich City fans around the world," Farke added.

"We hope that everyone enjoys the summer months and we have our fingers crossed that we will be back together once again at Carrow Road and stadiums around the country."
