Daniel Farke won't leave Norwich City until he feels like his work is done.
The Canaries boss has had plenty of admirers for his work since arriving in England in 2017 and is a popular figure amongst supporters despite failing to keep City in the top-flight last season.
Farke has admitted that he isn't a man in pursuit of trophies or wealth, and finds more value in his work at Carrow Road.
“When I have done everything and the club is in the right place, then maybe I will go and look for a new challenge for myself. I don’t have a career plan. I was never out for the most money or titles," City's boss said on the All in Yellow Podcast.
"For me, there are other values that are more important. I want to create history. Sometimes it can be more important to develop a club and make the lives of people a little bit better than to be at a club who has better opportunities and has won 46 titles and you become the 47th who can do this.
“It’s more valuable if you can help Norwich achieve its long-term vision.
“I had already the opportunity to do this (work in the Bundesliga) and never did this because I chose to work here in England. This says a lot about my attitude. I really feel blessed that I am allowed to work here."

Farke feels that his work can help provide positivity for the community, something that is integral to his enjoyment of working at the club.
“That’s why I love this club so much. There’s a special bond within the community and the city, it’s not just winning games or pretending it’s something it’s not. It’s to make sure this place and this community is in a better place. It’s not just about the first-team, it’s about the community.
“I’ve got a home in Germany but my first home in England will be here in Norwich, whatever happens in the future. It could also be that I work in a different city in England or Germany but this will always be my second home. There is already yellow blood in my veins.”
