Former Norwich boss Daniel Farke signs three-year deal with Borussia Monchengladbach and returns home to take on first manager job in Germany for five years

  • Borussia Monchengladbach have announced Daniel Farke as their new head coach
  • The German side parted ways with 52-year-old manager Adi Hutter last month
  • They ended up 10th in the Bundesliga last campaign with fewer wins than losses
  • The former Norwich coach will return to Germany for the first time in five years
  • He used to coach Borussia Dortmund’s reserve side between 2015 and 2017

Daniel Farke has been named as the new head coach at Borussia Monchengladbach after signing a deal with the club until 2025.

The German manager spent a four-year spell at Carrow Road and won Norwich promotion to the Premier League twice during that period.

Despite his success with the Canaries in the Championship, Farke did not enjoy the same fortunes in the top flight and was ultimately let go last November to make way for new Norwich head coach Dean Smith.

The 45-year-old then signed for Russian club Krasnodar in January but soon left without managing a single match following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

But, after three months out of work, Farke has now returned to his German roots to take up arms with Monchengladbach, who were disappointed to finish 10th in the Bundesliga last season.

Before his tenure at Carrow Road, the German coach impressed as the manager of Borussia Dortmund’s reserve team between 2015 and 2017.

The Foals’ sporting director Roland Virkus told the club website on Saturday: ‘In Daniel Farke, we have been able to sign a coach that fits perfectly to the path that we want to go down as a club.

‘We are looking forward to tackling the challenges that lie ahead of us, together with him.’

The German side parted company with former head coach Adi Hutter after he guided them to their worst top flight finish in over a decade.

Farke will be joined at Borussia-Park by assistant managers Christopher John and Edmund Riemer, who accompanied the German chief in Krasnodar and Norwich.
