Norwich boss Farke: Burnley point a first step

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke was pleased with their 0-0 draw at Burnley.

It is the first point Norwich have gained this season after a tough run of fixtures saw the team lose the opening six games of the campaign.

“It was quite an intense game and quite a physical game and that is what we expected," he said. “It was not easy for us to play this game today, because we had lost the first six games and the confidence level of my young squad was not that high.

“To make sure that we got off the mark in this game, that we returned to the dressing room with the first point and the first clean sheet, is really good.

"It is just the first step. We don't have to over interpret it. There are many, many steps that need to follow and, of course, we are not perfectly happy that we have not managed to win a football game and for that we would have preferred that we would have used one of our good situations in the second half to win this game, but I can't complain too much and I have to give many compliments to my lads.

"They played today full of intensity, fully committed and with top defending behaviour. We showed some real steel and it is for me even more pleasing to be here in a difficult away game, because everybody speaks about Turf Moor being the most physical and intense game, with the first point and the first clean sheet."
