Nor place for Phelan

Midweek Sport - - SPORTS -

MIKE PHELAN has left his role as Nor­wich first-team coach by mu­tual con­sent.

The 52-year-old for­mer Ca­naries mid­fielder was among the favourites to be­come new man­ager af­ter Neil Adams quit ear­lier this month.

But the club in­stead made a sur­prise ap­point­ment by bring­ing in Alex Neil from Hamil­ton.

A state­ment on City’s of­fi­cial web­site read: “Mike, a Ca­nary hall of fame mem­ber and for­mer cap­tain of Nor­wich City, leaves with the very best wishes of ev­ery­one at the club for the fu­ture.”
