CANARIES CONTINUE WITH AL
NORWICH City chairman Ed Balls has confirmed that caretaker-manager Alan Irvine will be in charge when the Canaries play Aston Villa next weekend.
Irvine has been looking after the team since Alex Neil was sacked a fortnight ago, with the club looking to appoint a new sporting director before choosing a head coach.
It is believed that Huddersfield’s Stuart Webber is in line to take the sporting director post.
“We’re a long way down the track,” Balls said. “We are close to getting this (sporting director) announced. Alan Irvine is definitely in charge for the Villa game.”
