Dean Smith Named New Head Coach of Norwich City
Takes over just 8 days after being sacked by Aston Villa.
Norwich City have confirmed the appointment of Dean Smith as their new manager.
Smith, sacked by Aston Villa eight days ago, agreed to take over at Norwich for two and a half years after Frank Lampard withdrew from the running.
The club have struggled since being promoted last season and currently sit bottom of the Premier League, below only Newcastle on goal difference.
Former manager Daniel Farke was sacked on November 6 - after winning his first game of the season against Brentford.
In a statement after being appointed, Smith said: “It has been a whirlwind seven days, but I’m really pleased to be back and working for Norwich City in the Premier League."
Smith starts with a game at home to Southampton on Saturday.
