Norwich manager Farke: Klopp comparison good for me

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke will welcome comparisons with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp this season.

Norwich face the Reds at Anfield on the opening day of the season in August.

“No, it's not annoying," Farke said when asked about his reaction to people contrasting the two.

“In general it is a good sign if you are mentioned alongside a world class coach and we are able to compete on the same field," he said. “I know how the football business works.

“Two German coaches, two coaches who worked for Borussia Dortmund and the interest there in this connection.

“I am full of respect for Jurgen's work. At Mainz, at Dortmund and now at Liverpool he delivered outstanding performances.

“Of course we want to be successful at Anfield so my fingers are crossed. I wish him the best in every other game this season, apart from the first one and one in February."
