Frank Lampard was contacted by Norwich City F.C to become their head coach. Lampard is now out of the running after further talks on Friday; Daniel Farke was sacked by Norwich on November 6 after one win in 11 Premier League games
Frank Lampard is understood to have held good conversations with Norwich, who were impressed by the former Derby and Chelsea boss, but he does not feel the job is right for him at this stage of his career.
The former West Ham, Chelsea and England midfielder’s removal from the process appears to leave Dean Smith as the leading candidate for the job at Carrow Road.
Smith, who was sacked by Aston Villa on Sunday, was also said to have impressed Norwich during his interview on Thursday.
The 50-year-old is believed to have shown an in-depth knowledge of Norwich’s squad and playing style, as well as an understanding of the culture at the club.
He is also believed to have plenty of experience in the Premier League and Championship from his time in charge of Villa and Brentford. However, Smith has not yet decided whether he would like to take the job if offered it.
