Norwich City have been dealt a blow in their search for Alex Neil’s replacement, with two highly regarded coaches landing jobs at rival Sky Bet Championship clubs.
Neil was sacked by Norwich on Friday evening, as the club’s current campaign looks to be heading for disappointment.
Despite leading the Canaries to the Premier League in 2015, Neil has disappointed this season, with Norwich currently ninth in the Championship table and eight-points behind sixth placed Sheffield Wednesday.
The Canaries had been early season favourites for promotion and started the current season well, but failure to record a victory in November, saw Neil’s side fall out of the Play-Off positions.
Former England manager Roy Hodgson has been linked with the vacancy at Carrow Road, but with two Championship rivals making appointments this morning, here is how Norwich fans are reacting on Twitter…
Would have been happy with Rowett but main thing is getting the appointment right. Hopefully the Board can surprise me! #ncfc

Calm down fellow Ncfc fans. Rowett has joined Derby, Warburton Forest. But to say we've missed out?! They're not Fergie and Conte chill!!!

So, Rowett to Derby and Warburton to Forest. What does that leave us with? Starting to hope it's something out of left field. Giggs? #ncfc

Really pleased Warburton and Rowett have gone to other clubs.
Didn't want either of them at Carrow Road. #ncfc

So we've sacked AN & missed out on Rowett & Warburton through being too slow to re-appoint the job #ncfc

Rowett & Warburton snapped up. Only poverty managers are left now, we need to look abroad #ncfc
