Daniel Farke insists it is wrong to single out Norwich City players for criticism.
The Canaries’ losing streak since the return of the Premier League, allied to Farke’s faith in the likes of Lukas Rupp, Ondrej Duda and Josip Drmic during that period, has brought plenty of scrutiny from some City fans.
But in the same manner the Canaries’ chief has resisted a growing glamour for Adam Idah to start, he will continue to look at the bigger picture.
“We have to be a bit careful. When you lose games the players who played are the losers but I am not addicted to this idea the ones who don’t play are the winners,” he said.
“I can remember when Tom (Trybull) was not playing there was a call for him to come back in to the side with his passing quality. When he does come back and we lose, like Southampton, and everyone is blaming Tom that he is not solid enough.
“Josip Drmic was in great shape before the lockdown, scored goals in pre-season and then he has one game on the pitch and we are still struggling to score and Josip gets stick.
“It is always the same. When we don’t win you can’t divide the team into winners and losers.
“That is not the way we judge. Of course, as an attacking player it is much harder for us at this level than last season when we dominated games and we created chance after chance.”
