Cologne – The German team manager Daniel Farke of Premier League promoted Norwich City feels great differences in terms of the importance of football in comparison between Germany and England. "The appreciation, the value and the perception are completely different and you can feel that in his role as manager," said the 42-year-old before the opening match of the new season at Liverpool on Friday (21.00 clock) of the world.

The attention on the island was "a lot bigger," the coach continued. Nevertheless, the respect that many Bundesliga coaches described their job compared to last as missing, exists. "There's a prejudice that the media and fans in England can be very sharp, that's the way it is, but you always feel the respect and the impressive appreciation that is shown to the coaching profession – and at all levels," said Farke. The treatment was respectful, fair and stylish.

Farke had come in 2017 from Borussia Dortmund II in the East of England and managed in the past season as the second German coach after the new Schalke coach David Wagner promotion to the Premier League. In the coming season, he sees his young team clearly as outsiders. His team was certainly "favorite in 20th place," said Farke. But: "Assume that we will do our best to play a good role, we want to be rebellious."
