Is Frank Lampard the next Norwich manager? Assessing who the Canaries will appoint after Daniel Farke sacking

Norwich City recently parted ways with their German manager Daniel Farke, which was odd because he finally led them to a victory in the league right before his sacking. But the rot had started from gameweek 1 itself, it seemed. The Canaries lost 8 games and drew 2 prior to Farke’s sacking and are now in need of a manager that can keep them in the league. So, is Frank Lampard the next Norwich manager, or is Dean Smith a surprise candidate?

Is Frank Lampard the next Norwich manager?

As it stands, no. A tweet by Fabrizio Romano has ruled Frank Lampard out of the running to be the new Norwich City boss. The Chelsea legend had apparently opened talks with the Canaries on Monday but is unconvinced by the project. There have been strong rumours linking the England legend with the vacant job at Norwich.

Reports across England place him as the favourite to take the position, especially with his career-long frenemy Steven Gerrard taking over the managerial helm at Aston Villa earlier this month. But to some extent, it makes sense for him to disapprove of this job for a variety of reasons.

Firstly, no one would want to have a relegation battle, and possibly, a relegation season, on their C.V. Norwich look doomed and their squad aren’t really up to the level needed to survive in the English top division. It is a big ask to steer them to safety no matter who comes in this season.

Is Dean Smith a candidate to be the next Norwich manager?

The former Aston Villa boss is one man in the running for the Villans job considering Lampard may well and truly be out of the running. He was sacked by the club earlier this month and is now a free agent. Smith guided Villa from the Championship and has made them a mid-table team in the Premier League.

That would be Norwich’s dream right now and a similar project at Carrow Road would surely send the Norwich fans into ecstasy. Right now, it seems that the next manager would be Smith and Lampard’s name was only hyped up because of the news relating to Steven Gerrard at Villa Park. However, it remains to be seen who takes the helm at Norwich City with time slowly running out for them to steer clear of the dreaded drop zone.
