Hughton sacked by Norwich

By Football News



Chris Hughton has been sacked by Norwich City following their recent slip towards the Premier League relegation zone.

A club statement read: "Norwich City can confirm Chris Hughton, Colin Calderwood and Paul Trollope have parted company with the club with immediate effect - and former Canary winger and FA Youth Cup-winning coach Neil Adams has been appointed as first team manager.

"The Norwich City Board has taken the decision to give the club the maximum chance to secure the points required between now and the end of the season to ensure retention of our Premier League status."
