Daniel Farke is urging fans to savour the Canaries’ Championship surge – but he must stay grounded after a 1-0 win at QPR capped a stunning week.
City moved to within four points of leaders Leeds, following a third straight league victory at Loftus Road, sealed by Teemu Pukki’s sixth club goal of the season.
Farke led the celebrations at the final whistle, with the entire coaching staff and players taking to the pitch to salute supporters.
“There are some really crazy lads in the changing room, full of passion and full of emotion.
“Even our kit man is so desperate to win and it is the job of the players to try and fulfil those wishes,” said Farke.
“Everyone on our staff, from the kit man to the coaches, is so desperate to be successful for this club. This attitude and feeling is in our whole group.
“When you win games it is vital you enjoy it, not lose the focus, but also to share it with our fans.
“Our away fans, brilliant. They are always with us in difficult times. Even though there were not too many difficult moments in this game. We want to make them happy.
“The fans are allowed to do what they want. They love this club, they have had so many good experiences in the past following this great club so they deserve to fly a bit and enjoy this at the moment. That is why we play football.
“Me, I totally have both feet on the ground.”
City head to Wycombe on Tuesday on League Cup business before Wigan visit Carrow Road.
Farke insists there is no chance he will get carried away after masterminding three consecutive league wins for the first time in his Carrow Road spell.
“I can judge where we are coming from and where we finished last season.
“Then you add the fact we had to sell our best players again,” he said. “No club in western Europe in the last 14 months has had to do this to the same level.
“Normally you lose your best players you are happy not to fight against relegation.
“That would be an objective opinion to our situation but I am totally pleased with our points and also performances.
“They are heading in the right direction. I told the lads at the end it is important they feel this joy and happiness because the Championship is such a busy league.”
