Daniel Farke: Norwich City boss says players must be more 'brutal'


Norwich City boss Daniel Farke says his players must be “more brutal” if they are to halt their poor run of form.Saturday’s draw with Preston meant the Canaries have gone seven games without a victory in any competition.And they are also on their longest winless streak at home in the league since 1999, also seven matches.

“We were perhaps a little bit too soft, naive and a bit young in our behaviour against the ball,” 41-year-old Farke told BBC Radio Norfolk.”I think we have to defend set-pieces more grown-up and more aggressively.”Norwich fan covers as fourth official after injuryNorwich are 14th in the Championship – 10 points clear of the bottom three, but eight adrift of the play-off places.Head coach Farke said his side are missing the physicality of Timm Klose, Alex Tettey and Tom Trybull.”I think especially we have to grow up more in our behaviour, to be more brutal in finishing situations but also in defending,” he added.”When you have many injury problems and many experienced lads out you have to accept the young lads are sometimes not so brutal in the finishing situation, or perhaps a bit too soft in our defending as well.”
