Norwich completed twentieth within the Premier League in 2019/20 earlier than bouncing straight back up final time period however Webber is satisfied they will nonetheless keep away from an identical destiny this time round – and says Farke is the appropriate man to guide them in direction of that aim.

“Of course,” Webber stated, when requested by Sky Sports if the supervisor nonetheless had the membership’s backing. “The situation here isn’t down to one person. When we win it’s not down to one person, when we lose it’s not down to one person.

“I and the membership are 100 per cent behind him. We’re on this state of affairs. It’s not, ‘he is on this state of affairs’, or, ‘the gamers are on this state of affairs’. We all are. And all of us need to do higher as a result of what we’re producing at the minute is not adequate.

“We all need to step up and chunk down on the gumshield and begin swinging back. What we have produced to this point hasn’t been adequate and the one individuals who can change that’s us. It’s not down to 1 particular person.

“It was a difficult day at the office [at Chelsea], an embarrassing defeat for us. For everyone in every part of the club, it hurt a lot and so it should. We’ve got two options now, we can sulk about it or use that energy to bounce back and prove we can do a lot better and start winning games.”

“We’ve obtained to be higher than that. Two years in the past we obtained relegated and we understood the explanation why. I took full duty for that, completely that was on me. But second time round it was about coming back stronger and higher and I will not – and we cannot – settle for that. None of us will at this membership as a result of we all know we’re adequate to remain in and compete on this league.

“We’re the eleventh highest spenders in Europe. By all means, criticise us for spending badly if that is what folks suppose however do not criticise us for not spending as a result of that is not the reality. People say we’re not having a go, that is utterly unfair.

“If you look at what we’ve done at this club over the last few years around infrastructure, we’ve now got a training ground which would be anywhere around the top 10 in the Premier League in terms of its level. We’ve got a thriving academy which keeps producing young players, we’ve got 22,000 season ticket holders… I’m sure there’s lots of clubs who would like to swap places with us in terms of that.

“We’ve obtained a number of proficient gamers, we have a robust squad, a squad that’s a lot deeper and stronger than it is ever been for this soccer membership.

“For the people saying that, they’ve got their facts wrong. By all means criticise us and say we’ve done things poorly but don’t say we haven’t had a go or we’ve not spent money because that’s lazy and people who haven’t done their research.

“Part of me has loved how a lot we have been written off as a result of it means once we do come back we are able to actually shove it up a couple of folks. We have to show folks flawed. I do know we are able to do it [stay up]. I’ve by no means had extra perception within the gamers and the employees and the administration for us to do it as an entire membership.

“But the only way we can do it is hard work, belief and showing a bit of bottle. Not hiding or making excuses or chucking people under the bus. We need to take control and put our destiny in our own hands.”
