Frank Lampard in talks to fill managerial vacancy at Norwich City


Frank Lampard held talks with Norwich City on Monday as the club’s search for a new manager goes on. The former Chelsea manager is one of three candidates being considered by the promoted side and no decision on a frontrunner has been taken.

The 43-year-old has been out of a job since January 2021, having endured a run of two wins in eight Premier League games. In his only full season in charge of Chelsea, he guided them to fourth and reached the FA Cup final.

Lampard is yet to decide whether Norwich is the right move for him and Monday’s talks were a chance for both parties to find out more about each other.

Norwich sacked Daniel Farke on Saturday shortly after he led them to their first Premier League victory of the season, a 2-1 win at Brentford. The club’s sporting director, Stuart Webber, said it was “the right time for a change” with top-flight survival at stake.

The decision came just over a week after Webber said it would be “incredibly unfair” to question the position of Farke, who oversaw promotion to the Premier League in 2019 and 2021, after a run of two points from their past 19 top-flight matches.
