Daniel Farke says he has no regrets about how Norwich went about the season after they were relegated from the Premier League.
A 4-0 defeat against West Ham confirmed Norwich’s return to the Championship with three games still to go.
Despite relegation, Farke said the club’s future is bright.
“Our situation as a club is quite comfortable because we don’t have any financial pressure at all,” said the German.
Norwich’s seventh successive league defeat – after Michail Antonio scored all four of West Ham’s goals – left Farke’s side anchored at the foot of the table, 13 points from safety with only three games to play.
Farke was appointed Norwich boss in May 2017, soon after the Canaries had finished eighth in the Championship table.
They finished 14th in his first campaign before winning the Championship in 2018-19.
“I’m really disappointed. We wanted to beat the odds again but when the dust settles the outcome is more or less what was expected,” said Farke.
“When I came here we needed to develop young players and sell them to keep the club going. We were able to do this and we sold James Maddison.
“Then the second season no-one expected anything but we were able to stage a miracle.
“We won the Championship title with a special brand of football. We were not able to add a third miracle in a row against all odds.”-BBC
