Former Hamburger SV boss Bruno Labbadia linked with Norwich Cityby Jack Kitson / 31 March 2017, 12:16Tweet
Norwich City’s search (are they even looking?) for Alex Neil’s replacement rambles on with Fleetwood Town gaffer Uwe Rosler topping the pile, ahead of Canaries interim boss Alan Irvine and Barnsley’s Paul Heckingbottom, while the former Bayern Munich striker Bruno Labbadia has suddenly shot into the mix at 9/1 (Sky Bet).
It looks for all the world that Irvine will remain in place until the end of the season as the club bids to make the Championship play-offs (they are five points adrift with eight games to go).
Irvine has picked up four points from two matches as Norwich’s interim head coach, and he’ll be gunning to pick up three move this weekend away to Aston Villa.
The abrupt appearance of Labbadia is a strange one seeing that he was last seen battling relegation with Bundesliga side Hamburger SV, with whom he left winless back in September.
The 51-year-old has zero experience in English football, while he’s actually never even managed outside of Germany, with Stuttgart and Bayer Leverkusen among his previous clubs - reaching German cup finals with each each team.
Elsewhere, Fleetwood will be desperate to keep hold onto their boss Rosler who is currently attempting to become the first manager in the club’s history to lead them up to the Championship.
Earlier in the week Rosler came in at 1/8 in the betting, but can now be found at 5/4 (Bet Victor).
In truth, this one is likely to traipse on through to the summer…
