Norwich chief Webber insists Farke safe after Chelsea thrashing

Norwich City are standing by manager Daniel Farke.

Norwich are propping up the Premier League having lost seven of their nine league games so far and scored just twice.

Farke has now failed to win any of his last 19 top-flight games, including the 10 successive defeats they suffered in their previous Premier League campaign when they were relegated in 2020.

Scrutiny of the Norwich boss, who signed a new four-year contract in June, has increased further following Saturday's 7-0 defeat at Chelsea but sporting director Stuart Webber said: "To be questioning, Daniel, at this point, I think would be incredibly unfair.

"If you asked Daniel are we happy at the minute? Of course not none of us are. It's unacceptable. Unacceptable what happened on Saturday, and unacceptable in terms of our points return, none of us want that.

"But that doesn't come down to one man. We've got 300 staff here, every single one of them has a massive responsibility to step up.

"This is a time now where this isn't about focusing on one man. This is about focusing on the whole."
