Norwich City set to appoint Dean Smith as new manager


Norwich City are set to name Dean Smith as their new manager, according to the Guardian

It is said that the 50-year-old has reached an agreement with the Canaries to take over at Carrow Road. 

The Premier League outfit sacked Daniel Farke this month after he led the Yellows to a terrible 2021-22 season start. 

The Norfolk based side are currently at the bottom of the league table, securing only five points from 11 matches. 

Smith, who is set to pen a two and a half year deal, now has a huge task to help Norwich survive in the English top-flight.  

The 50-year-old lost his job at Aston Villa earlier this month after he failed to deliver results at the Lions. 

The Birmingham based side lost five consecutive league matches under the English boss to drop down to 16th in the table. 

And Villa finally decided to part company with him after their 1-0 defeat at Southampton last week. 

However, this shouldn’t make us doubt the coaching credentials of Dean Smith. He guided the Lions to Premier League promotion in 2019, defeating Derby County in the play-offs final. 

The English football expert also kept Villa in the top-flight for two seasons, securing a 17th and 11th place finish respectively. 

While the 50-year-old also had spells at Walsall and Brentford before he took the job at Villa Park in 2018.
