Norwich sporting director Webber moves to assure Farke

Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber has assured Daniel Farke the club will not make a knee jerk decision on his future.

An injury crisis at Carrow Road hasn't helped the Canaries in their Premier League return, with the club second bottom with six points.

"From a financial point, we'll be working three years ahead because we can guarantee what our income is," said Webber. "In terms of our squad progression, we know exactly who is on what contract and when we'd expect them to leave.

"You've got to be prepared, but you also have to be realistic. That's what I think is the best thing for our players and Daniel Farke, the fact we don't judge everything here purely on results.

"It's about what our performances, the process and the culture are like. Are we building the club along the way, not just purely focusing on results?

"If we lose, then we won't be the club to sack Daniel or go and spend £50m in January.

"It's about the journey, and if we get everything right along the way and we get a bit of luck, then we still think we can be successful doing it."
