Chelsea legend Frank Lampard had been linked with the vacant managerial position at Norwich, following the sacking of Daniel Farke.
Farke was axed from the Canaries job, with Norwich bottom of the table and in danger of being relegated after 11 games played so far in the Premier League this season.
Lampard has been out of work since he was sacked by Chelsea in January, but the former Blues midfielder and manager doesn’t seem too keen on the Norwich job.
Sky Sports has confirmed that Lampard has withdrawn from the running to replace Daniel Farke as the next Norwich head coach.
Lampard is understood to have held good conversations with Norwich, who were impressed by the former Derby and Chelsea boss, but he does not feel the job is right for him at this stage of his career.
Lampard and Dean Smith were the two favourites for the job, but his withdrawal sees Smith as the leading candidate for the job at Carrow Road.
It’s a smart move by the Blues legend, as the Norwich job is a risky one and could leave a huge dent on his career.
