Daniel Farke insists a forensic dive into Norwich City’s injury-cursed Premier League campaign will be a top close season priority.

Farke does not have the financial power in the transfer market or the depth of squad to cope with the injury issues which have blighted Norwich City’s return to the top flight.

The City chief is not looking for any excuses over the run in, but plans to undertake a detailed analysis when the dust settles.

“It makes no sense if I feel sorry for myself or complain about fate or the world against us,” he said. “If you look at all the injuries we have it might feel strange for me but really the lads themselves are so disappointed because they wanted to play a part in these final weeks.

“(Christoph) Zimmermann, probably our most important defender in the last two years, injured himself last summer in his private life and then a brutal tackle at West Ham. Grant Hanley was probably in the best shape since we have worked together and now he is out because of over-stretching in a friendly at Tottenham. Then add Sam Byram, who has had a pretty rare reaction to surgery.

“It is the reality and one thing is for sure when we sit down to analyse the season we will look at this topic very carefully. But not now.”
