Norwich City Resigned To Losing Paul Lambert

The imminent departure of Paul Lambert to Aston Villa means that Norwich City will have to face up to the stark reality of finding a new manager at Carrow Road. On Thursday Lambert handed in his resignation to the City owners, which was promptly rejected. However, Lambert is the odds-on favourite in the Next Aston Villa Manager Odds and there now seems little Norwich can do to stop the Scot from moving to Villa, with reports speculating that he could be installed as their new manager this weekend.

Lambert’s stock has risen over the past few years after leading the Canaries to back-to-back promotions up to the Premier League. In their first season back in the big time they looked impressive and finished in a respectable 12th place. His achievements at the Norfolk club have inevitably caught the eye of other Premier League sides, including Aston Villa. Lambert is believed to be disappointed at the lack of funds made available to him this summer, meaning it would be very difficult for the 42-year-old to add to his squad ahead of the new season. In contrast Villa are reportedly set to give him the cash he needs to mould a new squad together at Villa Park.

The Next Norwich City Manager Odds are now up and running, with the early frontrunners including Cardiff City manager Malky Mackay and Birmingham City boss Chris Hughton. Both managers experienced Championship play-off heartache earlier this month, with their respective sides losing out to eventual winners West Ham. Ian Holloway and Gus Poyet are also being named as possible replacements, while reports have today linked Celtic manager Neil Lennon with the job.
