The Spaniard has already come up against Farke previously in the Premier League in the 2019/20 season and spoke highly of the Norwich boss.

"There are relations where you have more feelings than the others," he said. "Not in managers, in life. The two or three times we met each other… he is German. I worked there.

"I like his courage. The proposal is always so attractive. I like it.

"I am very pleased they came back after being relegated. The support he had from the club and now they have extended the contract for many years. That means they feel comfortable together. That’s all."
