Press conference recap: Webber and Farke on duty as Canaries prepare for trip to Birmingham

The opening-day trip to Birmingham moved a step closer for Norwich City this afternoon when head coach Daniel Farke and sporting director Stuart Webber spoke at the club’s pre-match press conference.
Farke and Webber were speaking to the media ahead of Saturday’s opening-day encounter with the Blues, providing fans with the latest team news ahead of the game.
The Championship’s opening day has been rather over-shadowed for Birmingham boss Garry Monk, due to transfer restrictions put in place by the EFL due to financial difficulties.
Last season the Canaries started their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Fulham, who were eventually promoted, but the same was tainted by an aggressive celebration from goal-scorer Nelson Oliveira in Farke’s direction having been left on the bench before coming on to score the equaliser.
