Hughton promised funds
New Norwich City manager Chris Hughton can expect more cash than former boss Paul Lambert, the club's chief executive revealed.
Hughton left his post at Birmingham City to take over from Lambert at Carrow Road last week and has a hard act to follow after three whirlwind seasons under the Scot. Lambert, who recently left for Aston Villa, won back-to-back promotions during his first two seasons in charge before re-establishing the Canaries in the Premier League last term. Lambert achieved his success on a modest budget, relying on a keen eye for promising talent. However, it will be a different story for Hughton. "In Norwich City terms there's more financial freedom for the manager than there's ever been," chief executive David McNally told BBC Radio Norfolk. "I think that's quite an attractive proposition for a hungry, committed manager like Chris Hughton. I don't think he had any spare cash to trade with at Birmingham." Use your free bet to back Norwich for a top-10 finish next season.
