Norwich boss Daniel Farke is facing a player revolt, with the German being accused of ‘overtraining’ his players, according to the Independent.

Farke, who joined from German side Borussia Dortmund in the Summer, is facing pressure as his City side continue with a horrible run of form that has seen them slide down the league table. Check out these football odds on Norwich’s upcoming fixtures.

Players have reportedly criticised the German for putting an excessive workload on the players, that some fear could result in more injuries as the Canaries begin the hectic Christmas period. Norwich play Brentford on Friday, before visiting St Andrews on Tuesday to play struggling Birmingham City. They then travel to another Midlands team in Burton Albion on Saturday 30th December.

Senior figures at the club have spoken to Farke about the complaints. However, the German is sticking by his methods, even as Norwich continue to struggle with one win in ten games.

Players were also shocked when Farke told them to be ‘more brutal’ after accusing the players of being soft.

Farke’s immediate future is seemingly secure, as the board remain committed to the long-term project. However, they are aware of the displeasure in the coach’s current methods.
