Former Aston Villa manager, Dean Smith has been appointed as the head coach of Norwich City following the sack of Daniel Farke.
Dean Smith signed a two-and-half-year deal with Norwich City barely eight days after being sacked by premier league club, Aston Villa.
The 50-year-old has been joined at Carrow Road by his long-term assistant head coach Craig Shakespeare.
Reacting to his appointment, Dean 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,”.
“Clearly, there has been some wonderful work that has gone into this football club over the last four-and-a-half years. It is now the job of myself and Craig to continue and improve on that work with the ultimate aim of surviving in the Premier League.
“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.”
Norwich are bottom of the premier league after registering a win in 11 matches.
