Farke: Norwich can be happy Man City boss Guardiola a fan

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke admits Pep Guardiola is a fan of the Canaries.

The Manchester City manager admitted last week he watches the Championship leaders in his spare time.

Speaking after Norwich beat Wycombe in the Championship at the weekend, Farke confirmed he is close with Guardiola, revealing that the City boss 'loves' to keep up with the Canaries' progress.

He said: "I hope it was meant as a compliment. I watch golf to relax but the problem is I fall asleep at times.

"Listen, I know it was meant as a compliment. I don't speak in public about this but I have a really good relationship with Pep.

"We talk a lot. We are close friends. I know he follows what we are doing and is always asking, 'what are you doing with your Norwich team' so I know he is a fan of us.

"There is worse comments than if one of the best coaches in the world says he likes to watch our football. He loves to follow our football club.

"Hopefully he enjoyed the game today with a little cake on the sofa because they had a great win on Saturday.

"I am not surprised. I knew for quite some time he follows our games. It is good Norwich have a fan in Pep Guardiola."
