Norwich City have appointed former Preston and Sheffield Wednesday manager Alan Irvine to their coaching set up, Sky Sports has confirmed.
The Scot will link up with current manager Alex Neil and will be hoping to use his experience to help guide the Canaries back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
The 57-year-old has a wealth of experience in the game, and along with his spells in charge of the Owls and North End, he has also been part of coaching set ups at Everton and Newcastle.
Irvine has signed a deal to become the first team coach down at Carrow Road, and will no doubt be taking a hands on approach to training and tactics as he looks to embed some of his knowledge within the team.
Norwich were relegated from the Premier League last season after failing to score enough goals to muster a good fight against the drop. Boss Alex Neil will be aware of what is needed for next season, and has already started shaping the squad with the sale of Nathan Redmond to Southampton for £11m.
Norwich fans, what do you think about this news? Is Irvine a good addition to the set up? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
