Norwich manager Daniel Farke has told Marcus Edwards that he must ‘grow up’ if he is to get a chance at the Championship club.
Edwards is a highly rated playmaker, once compared to Barcelona star Lionel Messi by Mauricio Pochettino and he moved to the East Anglia club on loan earlier this month.
However the article says the 19-year-old is yet to make an appearance for the Canaries having had an issue with his back after making the move.
An article in the London Evening Standard says the German coach was full of praise for his technical ability, and he had trained well this week, however he added that he will have a problem if there is no change in attitude.”There is no pressure on this signing. If it works, we can have some fun with him. If not, it is more a problem for Marcus,” :Farke said.
He added:?”There is no doubt with the ball he is one of our best players. But without it, he has to grow up a bit.That was the reason he didn’t play for Tottenham.
Farke went on to say: “They have a good squad but he is still one of the best there with the ball. He has to be more grown up in his attitude.We got the feeling we could take him because there is no financial risk with a loan. We have really good conditions”
The article adds that Farke has said if Edwards is ready to alter his approach to the game, he feels they will have one of the best players in the division but if there is no change, the former Borussia Dortmund academy coach is more than happy to send him back to north London without game time.
He added: “If he is able to grow up pretty soon we have one of the best players in the Championship. 100 per cent.
