David Wagner does not ‘fear’ Cardiff will be his last game in charge of Norwich City.

The head coach has been backed by the club’s top brass and incoming sporting director Ben Knapper in recent days, but knows he is in the results business.

Frank Lampard has already been touted as a potential replacement at Carrow Road, but Wagner insists it is easy to ignore the noise ahead of a crucial Championship trip.

“I'm totally away from it. Because I don't read anything or be involved in anything,” he said. “This is why for me, it's quite simple, apart from the conversations I have with you I don't live in the outside world around Norwich City football club.

“Obviously everyone who is strong on social media, or in the media in general, for sure gets a lot of information, but what does it mean for me or anyone else? I learned a long time ago, maybe more than 10 years ago, when I was on social media or in the media that it costs me more energy than it gave me, and this is why 10 years ago, or whatever, I decided I will not be in this world, because it doesn't give me energy, it costs me more energy.

“Everyone has to decide for themselves. Do I get some positive energy out of it? Then I use it. Everything that doesn’t, I won’t.”

Wagner dead batted questions on whether he would resign after last weekend’s 3-1 Carrow Road home defeat to Blackburn.

“If you are in this business and have a job like mine, fear is never helpful,” he said. “Be focused on your day to day work. Try to be as calm as you can and to give everyone the reassurance that they have qualities, and they are good.

"I think this is a big, big thing from my point. What I have to do is to give the players the trust and the belief, which I have in them, even if one thing is totally clear as well - at one moment when they cross that white line it's up to them. They win the football matches, and hopefully they will do on Saturday.

“I had a lot of great moments in my career, but I had a lot of moments where I had to suffer as well. But what is always the same is it is not about me. It's about the players, the players win the games.

"Obviously, I'm the one who deals with the public and the media. But at the end of the day, it's not about me, it's about how we turn it and how we can get back to the performance level at the beginning of the season, where everybody was able to see what this team is capable of if all the players are healthy, and the squad is together.”
