Norwich boss Alex Neil has confirmed he is ‘likely’ to be in charge of the club’s bid to return to the Premier League next season.
The Canaries ended their season with a disappointing 3-0 defeat by Everton at Goodison Park four days after their relegation from the Barclays Premier League was sealed.
There has been speculation about whether Neil would stay on as manager in the Championship, but after Sunday’s clash, he confirmed that now “looks likely”.
The 34-year-old said: “There’s been brief discussions. I’ll have more discussions tomorrow but it looks likely at the moment that I’ll be here for next season.”
Norwich did all they could to hang on in midweek by beating Watford 4-2 but Sunderland’s 3-0 victory over Everton meant an immediate return to the Championship.
The rebuilding process starts immediately and it looks as though Neil will be in charge of it.
