Norwich City v Leeds United: Daniel Farke backs Whites after bad run

11 May 2024 0 By Total Football News

Norwich boss David Wagner led his side to a strong second half of the season to secure a sixth-placed finish, 17 points behind Leeds.

Like Farke, he does not believe that the regular season efforts of the two teams are important now.

“They were one of the favourites for promotion and they missed their first target, we reached our first target which was to finish in the top six,” he told BBC Radio Norfolk.

“Now they have the exact same chance as us as and the two other teams to be in the Premier League next season, 25%.

“That’s why it’s not relevant what happened in the previous 46 games.”

Wagner has won promotion through the play-offs before, having guided Huddersfield to the Premier League in 2017.

The German is hopeful he can use that experience to give his side the edge.

“We have let the players know what you have to do to win the play-offs,” he said.

“In every situation in life when you have done something you have the confidence you can do it again. It doesn’t automatically mean you will do it again, but it for sure isn’t a disadvantage.”
