CA­NARIES’ LURE TOO STRONG...

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

NORWICH’s new sport­ing di­rec­tor Stu­art Web­ber is ex­pect­ing a free rein in his new role af­ter de­cid­ing to leave Huddersfield.

Web­ber was Town’s head of foot­ball oper­a­tions, and one of his first jobs at City will be the ap­point­ment of a new head coach, with Alan Irvine cur­rently care­taker boss.

Web­ber said: “The op­por­tu­nity to come to a club the size of Norwich was some­thing which I couldn’t turn down.

“Hav­ing the re­mit to mas­sively af­fect the foot­ball depart­ment, from the first team right down to the academy, makes it an ex­cit­ing chal­lenge.”
