Dean Smith signs on as Head Coach

Former Aston Villa Boss Dean Smith has started a brand new week with a brand new job and one simple aim – Premier League survival following his appointment as Norwich head coach.

It’s just over a week since he was sacked by Aston Villa after five straight Premier League defeats. That last game was against Southampton, who just happen to be the opponents for his first game in charge of the Canaries.

Smith has signed a two and a half year deal, replacing Daniel Farke, who was shown the exit last weekend despite leading Norwich to their first win of the season.

Even with that victory, they still sit bottom of the table and are five points from safety. But this is one of the reasons they have gone for Smith, having successfully fought a relegation battle while at Villa during the 2019/20 season.
