Norwich boss Farke delighted for Pukki over award recognition

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke is delighted with Teemu Pukki this season.

Striker Pukki pipped Manchester City's Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling to the Premier League Player of the Month gong after his five-goal burst in August.

Farke said: “I'm delighted for Teemu, he totally deserved it.

“He can handle it. I'm not concerned he will lose the ground under his feet."

Norwich's German manager has ELEVEN players either out or playing through the pain barrier.

And that has left him with two fit defenders ahead of Manchester City's visit.

He said: “We won't cry. All my players can play in a defensive role. I said we would have to climb Everest to stay up — and now we have to do it without tools.

“But as long as we can find 11 lads we will fight for the points."
