Norwich boss Farke welcomes 'exciting' opener against Liverpool

Norwich City boss Daniel Farke has welcomed a Friday night Premier League kickoff against Liverpool.

The Canaries will travel to Anfield on Friday August 9th in the curtain raiser for the new Premier League campaign, which presents a stern test for the newly-promoted side.

"It's an exciting game for our supporters and the whole club. We are not naive. We know it's probably the toughest fixture you can get on your first game," Farke told the Eastern Daily Press.

"They are champions of Europe so that makes them the best team in Europe, probably the world.

"They have an unbelievable stadium with world-class players and a world-class manager and they'll be desperate to get their party started.

"But we are not scared. We want to play against the best teams. We've worked extremely hard for this opportunity to be competitive against the top teams in the country and we will be greedy to bring our football onto the pitch.

"We worked so hard in the recent months and played over 50 games last season. We don't want to just enjoy the moments against the top teams, we want to reward our supporters with good football and good results. We are focused on the job."
