Frank Lampard is no longer in the race to replace Daniel Farke at Norwich following his withdrawal of interest in the club’s managerial vacancy.
The 43-year old former Chelsea boss who held talks with the Carrow Road outfit earlier this week is said to be keen to return to frontline coaching, but has been waiting for the right opportunity.
Lampard’s refusal to take the vacant managerial role will mean that the Canaries will have to turn their focus elsewhere in search of a replacement for Farke, who was dismissed last Saturday.
Meanwhile, former Aston Villa manager, Dean Smith is understood to be among the remaining candidates for the Norwich job.
But whoever the club appoints as Farke’s successor will have a daunting task to take on as Norwich sit bottom of the table with just five points from 11 games, with Southampton up next on 20 November.
