Norwich boss Farke: Klopp was relegated - look at him now!

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke admits he'll draw inspiration from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp after their relegation.

Farke led the Canaries to promotion last season but their relegation has been confirmed after winning just five games this term as they find themselves 13 points adrift of safety with two matches remaining.

“My fellow German Jurgen Klopp – and no-one knows this – he was once promoted with Mainz to the Bundesliga and then relegated and right now, look at which level he is working," the Norwich boss said.

"And also Mainz are back in the Bundesliga, so it's definitely possible.

“When you have to suffer a setback, you have to take it and say, 'Come on, next time we will try to be even better prepared and back to stay for longer'.

“Of course we are disappointed – we would have preferred to stay in this league – but it's not like the world goes down, so we will keep going and we'll push on."
