Last summer, Norwich City took Ralf Fährmann on a season-long loan deal from Schalke.
The 31-year-old made an appearance each in the Premier League, the FA Cup and the EFL Cup this season as Daniel Farke preferred Tim Krul.
Lack of regular playing time with the Premier League side convinced the German to leave Carrow Road. On March 10th, he left Norwich and joined Norwegian side SK Brann until June 30th.
The goalkeeper’s temporary spell with Norwich has been nothing short of a disappointment.
Transfermarkt in Germany were presented an opportunity to interview the stopper and during the course of the discussion, Fährmann was asked about his ‘unfortunate’ loan spell with the Premier League club.
He said: “There’s no question that it didn’t go perfectly (laughs). Last summer, the situation was for me that Schalke absolutely wanted to extend the contract with Alex Nübel. I knew there would be no chance for me.”
“I then agreed with Schalke to go out on loan for a season so that I could gain as much experience as possible in the Premier League. The idea sounded great, but unfortunately, I wasn’t really happy at Norwich.”
When further quizzed on why he was not happy with the English club, Fährmann explained: “There were many things that weren’t so rosy. So, it was clear to me: Okay, I’ll be back in the summer, especially since I still had a three-year contract with Schalke.”
Unfortunately, Fährmann is yet to feature for the Norwegian side as football there is suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
