Norwich appoint Dean Smith as new head coach

Norwich have confirmed the appointment of Dean Smith as their new head coach.

He has signed a two-and-a-half-year contract to succeed Daniel Farke at Carrow Road.

Smith will be joined by assistant head coach Craig Shakespeare.

Norwich find themselves bottom of the Premier League, with just one win from their first 11 games.

It means a swift return to work for Smith, who was sacked by Aston Villa last week.

"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 said.

“Clearly, there has been some wonderful work that has gone into this football club over 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 Sporting Director Stuart Webber said the club were 'delighted' to have acquired Smith's services.

“I have admired his work for some time and he has been a long-term target in the event that we needed to appoint a new head coach.

“Dean has an outstanding track record and as soon as he made it clear that he was ready to go straight back into a managerial role we contacted him immediately.

“He shares the same values and vision as the club, has a proven track record of winning games in the Premier League as well as developing players and building a winning culture and mentality."
