Daniel Farke: I want us to play football with courage

11 January 2020

Norwich City Head Coach Daniel Farke has discussed the challenge of facing a Champions League-chasing Manchester United side at Old Trafford on Saturday.

“The plan for Saturday is quite easy – it’s to be as successful as possible,” he said. “We know it’s a huge task.

“The lads were focused after a brilliant away win in the FA Cup. Preston is a tough place to go so to be there with a convincing win was good for the mood. We know Manchester United is one of the greatest clubs in the world, fighting for the Champions League, so we know it’s a huge task.

“We travel with confidence and are looking forward to extending our unbeaten run to four games. I want to see bravery, us sticking to our philosophy. We have to be ourselves and not be too impressed by the atmosphere at Old Trafford or the name of the club and its players.

“They have world class players, but I want us to be the protagonists and play football with courage. It would be disrespectful of me, with Norwich in position 20, to speak about the weaknesses of United.

“Everything is possible in football and you can win each match, so we have a chance, as we’ve proven against top class sides this season. We won’t raise the white flag. We will try to beat them or at least get one point, but we’re still full of respect.”

With the January transfer window open, Farke was also asked at his pre-match press conference about rumours surrounding potential outgoings and incomings.

“There’s no potential for Max Aarons to leave,” he insisted. “I wouldn’t waste energy listening to the rumours. He’s young, 20-years old and has four and a half years left on his contract. It’s not the right time to think about a January move.

“I’d be doubtful of rumours when too many clubs are linked with a player. Three days ago, I heard he’d signed for Bayern Munich! He’s totally in the right place here. He’s played 21 Premier League games so far. Leave him alone and let him play football.

“Dennis Srbeny, Patrick Roberts, Philip Heise and Akin Famewo have left us in recent days. We were already working with a small group. We have possibilities to strengthen our squad, especially in offense. We need a few more options.”

The boss wasn’t too keen too discuss the fact that Emiliano Buendia is currently only behind Kevin De Bruyne in terms of chance creation in the Premier League this season, explaining the important of prioritising team success.

“I’m not interested in individual awards or statistics. The team success is more important. Last season, we had runs of nine or ten wins in a row and I didn’t win the Manager of the Month awards! I was asked if I was annoyed about that but the only thing I’m interested in is the success of the team. It’s good when players have good statistics because it’s a sign they’re in good shape, but I don’t want to praise individuals too much.”

Finally, after Adam Idah scored a hat-trick in last week’s FA Cup tie, the boss was eager to downplay the hype building around the 18-year old.

“Adam is a good option for us. He did alright at Preston in the FA Cup,” Farke said.

Match Reports

City defeated 4-0 at Old Trafford

11 January 2020

Norwich City were beaten 4-0 by Manchester United on what was a tough afternoon at Old Trafford.

The Canaries made a solitary enforced change following their most recent Premier League outing against Crystal Palace.

Trailing to a Marcus Rashford goal heading into the half time interval, only a superb save from David De Gea prevented Todd Cantwell from levelling the scores.

Adam Idah was in for a maiden league start in senior football, replacing the injured Teemu Pukki.

And Norwich made a steady start to the game, as the hosts saw much of the early possession but struggled to make inroads against a stubborn yellow rearguard.

But after a pretty eventless opening half-hour, United eventually found a way through.

Juan Mata found space on the right touchline, before drifting infield and clipping a cross in towards the far post. Rashford ghosted in to convert from point blank range.

In truth, it was largely one-way traffic, but again, the Norwich backline, expertly marshalled by skipper Grant Hanley, weathered the storm.

It took until the 44th minute for the Canaries to muster their first attempt of note on the United goal.

Tim Krul sprung a quick counter, Emi Buendia releasing Todd Cantwell in the left channel. He opened his body before seeing a finessed low effort towards the far corner repelled by David De Gea.

But what was already an uphill task became a whole lot more difficult just minutes after the restart following a quickfire United double.

Brandon Williams escaped in the left channel and was upended inside the area by the onrushing Tim Krul. Rashford converted from the resulting penalty kick.

And a United third arrived on 55 minutes following a quick corner kick. Mata received the ball, before clipping into the area where Martial rose highest to nod into the far corner.

City responded with a double substitution on 65 minutes, as Onel Hernandez and Ibrahim Amadou entered the action.

But it was United substitute Greenwood who made the game’s next significant contribution, collecting a loose ball 30 yards from goal before picking out the bottom corner with a low left-footed drive.

The home side held onto the clean sheet, despite a late flurry of half-chances from City.

Manchester United: De Gea, Lindelof, Maguire (C), Mata, Martial (Gomes 80), Rashford (James 59), Pereira (Greenwood 71), Fred, Wan-Bissaka, Matic, Williams
Unused substitutes: Grant, Jones, Dalot, Chong
Goals: Rashford (28, 52 pen), Martial (54), Greenwood (76)

Unused substitutes: Fahrmann, Leitner, Stipermann, Trybull
