Ray Wilkins slams lack of respect shown to British coaches after Daniel Farke’s appointment as Norwich City boss

28 May

Ray Wilkins has accused clubs in England of showing a lack of respect to homegrown coaches after Daniel Farke was confirmed as Norwich City’s new boss.

Like David Wagner a year before him, Farke has been plucked from his role as reserve team manager at Borussia Dortmund to be given a top job in the Championship.

The little-known German’s appointment has angered Wilkins, the former Aston Villa, Chelsea and Fulham assistant, who cannot understand why clubs continue to overlook aspiring British bosses.

“It tells us that we are not getting a lot of respect from clubs to be perfectly honest,” said Wilkins, when asked what he made of Farke getting the Norwich job.

“You have got Ryan Giggs sitting out there, you have got Tim Sherwood sitting out there, Garry Monk is out there now without a job.  

“This is very sad that we are bringing in a reserve coach [from Germany]. Our guys don’t get employed throughout Europe, which I find quite sad.

“We are bringing in coaches we don’t know about. I just wish we would start using some of our young blokes.”
