Norwich City fans give their newborn son ‘Farkelife’ middle name in honour of their promotion winning manager Daniel Farke

A Norwich City-mad couple have given their son the middle name ‘Farkelife’ in honour of manager Daniel Farke.

The Canaries sealed promotion to the Premier League last weekend with a 2-1 win against Blackburn Rovers.

Shun and Maiko Tomii welcomed their baby Kiraku into the world on April 23.

With the birth coming so close to Norwich sealing promotion, they decided to bestow a middle name to their son in honour of the achievement.

They decided on Farkelife, after the Blur-inspired chant based on their German manager Daniel Farke.

Mr Tomii has been a Norwich fan since he moved to the city from Japan 25 years ago.

He and his wife also run a sushi restaurant in the city.

“In Japan we don’t put middle names – it’s a European thing,” he told the Eastern Daily Press.

“I wanted something English or something related to Norwich and in support of Norwich.

“My wife said to me ‘what about Farkelife?’
