Norwich City boss Farke has dismissed notions that his team are scared to play Liverpool on matchday one of the 2019-20 Premier League.
“It’s an exciting game for our supporters and the whole club,” Farke told Norwich’s official website.
“We are not naive. We know it’s probably the toughest fixture you can get on your first game. They have an unbelievable stadium with world-class players and a world-class manager and they’ll be desperate to get their party started.
“But we are not scared. We want to play against the best teams. We’ve worked extremely hard for this opportunity to be competitive against the top teams in the country and we will be greedy to bring our football onto the pitch.
“We don’t want to just enjoy the moments against the top teams, we want to reward our supporters with good football and good results. We are focused on the job.”
“I don’t want to analyse the fixtures too much. You never know when is the best moment to play each team,” he added.
“We have a tough start against some of the best teams in Europe and it’s a big task for my young team, but they are greedy to succeed.
“We want to win points against the best and I think we will learn a lot from our first few games.”
