Norwich ‘is close to naming Frank Lampard as their next boss’ with former Chelsea manager set to return to the bench for the challenge of keeping Canarias up
- Frank Lampard is said to be close to becoming Norwich’s next coach
- Canarias fired coach Daniel Farke hours after beating Brentford 2-1
- Lampard has been out of work since he was fired by Chelsea earlier this year.
- Norwich is at the bottom of the Premier League after 11 games so far
Norwich is ready to appoint Frank Lampard as its new manager, according to reports.
Lampard has been out of work since Chelsea fired him in early 2021, but quickly emerged as one of the top candidates for the Carrow Road job following the firing of Daniel Farke and talkSPORT now inform that you will be hired.
Norwich ranks last in the Premier League with just one win in 11 games and Lampard will be tasked with avoiding the threat of relegation.
Frank Lampard is reportedly getting closer to being appointed as Norwich City’s next manager.
Norwich made the decision to fire Daniel Farke within hours of his 2-1 win at Brentford.
Petr Cech, who played alongside Lampard at Chelsea, told talkSPORT that he is not at all surprised that he is returning to top flight management.
Cech said earlier on Thursday: ‘He has all the qualities to be a Premier League manager.
“If someone is interested and someone comes to talk to him, if they have the right project for Frank, he loves soccer and he loves coaching with the same passion he had for playing.
“I am not surprised that his name appears now and it will only be a matter of time before he returns to the Premier League.”
Norwich is last in the Premier League with their only win at Brentford
Farke was relieved of his duties despite guiding Norwich to their first Premier League win of the season in a 2-1 win over newly promoted side Brentford.
That result still leaves Norwich at the foot of England’s top flight with five points, tied on points with Newcastle, who have yet to clinch victory this season after their 1-1 draw at Brighton.
Lampard has been out of work since Chelsea fired him in January and has been patiently awaiting his next project.
He took over the reins of his old club under a transfer embargo and impressively led the team to fourth place in his first season.
But the following season he found himself under great pressure after some demoralizing defeats and was replaced by Thomas Tuchel, who won the Champions League against Man City in the same campaign.
