Reports: Celtic Initiates Talks with Daniel Farke for Managerial Position

Celtic Football Club is said to have initiated discussions with Daniel Farke regarding the vacant managerial position.

Reports from Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg suggest that initial talks have taken place between the Scottish club and the German coach, who previously gained experience in British football during his time with Norwich City.

While Celtic’s discussions with Farke indicate a potential interest in his services, it is important to note that he may not be their primary target for the role. The talks represent an exploratory phase in the club’s search for a new manager.

Celtic will likely assess various candidates and carefully consider their options before making a final decision on who will lead the team going forward.

Farke’s coaching journey began under the guidance of Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund, where he honed his skills and developed a reputation for implementing attacking, high-energy football.

Norwich City took a chance on the former Dortmund youth coach, and he successfully delivered an attractive playing style during his tenure in East Anglia.

After his departure from Carrow Road, Farke briefly managed in Russia with Krasnodar until their invasion of Ukraine, prompting him to leave. Subsequently, he returned to his home country to join Borussia Monchengladbach.

However, his tenure at the Bundesliga club came to an end earlier this month as he was dismissed after just one season in charge, with the team finishing 10th in the league.

Farke has caught the attention of Leeds United, who are also considering him for their managerial position as they aim to secure a return to the English top flight.
