Daniel Farke, the manager of Norwich City, has been sacked from Carrow Road by the club.
The announcement comes on the heels of Norwich City‘s first win of the season, a 2-1 victory over Brentford.
Newcastle’s point at Brighton later on Saturday sent the Canaries to the bottom of the Premier League for another week.
Sporting director Stuart Webber said: “In continuing to demand the very best for our football club, this decision was not an easy one.
“I know how determined Daniel and his staff were to succeed at this level, but we feel that now is the right time for a change to give ourselves the best opportunity of retaining our Premier League status.
“All at Norwich City should be forever grateful to Daniel and his staff for the significant role they have played in our journey. They helped deliver two Championship titles, many memorable moments and they all fully bought into our philosophy and what it means to be part of this football club.
“Daniel and his staff will always be welcome back here. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them all for their hard work and wish them well for the future.
Farke oversaw two promotions to the Premier League and one relegation from the top division during his four-and-a-half years in charge of Norwich.
Last season, the German returned the team to the Premier League at the first time of asking, but it has been a difficult start to the season.
