A number of Norwich City's players have thanked Daniel Farke for the pivotal role in their careers in the wake of his sacking.

Farke and his coaching team were dismissed within hours of Saturday's 2-1 Premier League win at Brentford.

That came after a fighting display from the Canaries, greeted with emotional scenes at the final whistle from the squad and backroom staff following a first league win of the season.

Sporting director Stuart Webber addressed the players, after Farke had been informed of the club decision.

Academy talent such as Max Aarons, Adam Idah and Andrew Omobamidele later took to social media to pay tribute to the German's mentoring role.

Todd Cantwell also paid his tribute on Sunday morning, while acknowledging in his initial post he did not always 'see eye to eye' with the head coach who gave him his big break at Carrow Road.

But the likes of striker Teemu Pukki, experienced defender Ben Gibson, who captained the Canaries in the absence of injured skipper Grant Hanley, and keeper Tim Krul also offered warm words.

Here is a selection of the reaction from inside the City squad
