‘Pleased to be back’: Dean Smith authenticated as new Norwich manager

By Piyush


Norwich City have authenticated the appointment of Dean Smith as their new manager.

The PL’s bottom club reached an accordance with Smith after a weekend of settlement and he has set his sights on avoiding discharge.

Norwich dismissed Daniel Farke on 6th November and a day later Smith was discharged by Aston Villa.

Norwich have grappled since winning promotion last season and have given Smith, who has been accompanied by his assistant Craig Shakespeare, a 2.5 year contract.

Smith said, “Norwich City is a big club, with a massive hardcore of supporters who are fully understanding in what it means to be part of the club and its community. I was brought up in an era when Norwich were competing in Europe – I remember those times well and whenever I’ve visited Carrow Road and Norwich you can really sense the connection between the fans, staff and players. Together, we all have to make Carrow Road a really tough place for visiting teams.

“From the age of 16 I’ve been working in football. I think in that time I’ve had four months out and didn’t enjoy it. It’s great to get straight back in with a club that are determined to be progressive.”
