Johannes Hoff Thorup: Norwich look to appoint Nordsjaelland manager

Written by on May 27, 2024

BBC Radio Norfolk’s Rob Butler

It’s fair to say Norwich City fans have been hard to please over the last couple of seasons.

Dean Smith didn’t light any fires at Carrow Road, he was followed in the head coach hot seat by David Wagner who took the club to a respectable sixth-place finish in the Championship.

The play-offs beckoned but when the Canaries were soundly beaten by Leeds United in a raucous semi-final second leg at Elland Road, Wagner’s dismissal felt inevitable. There wasn’t too many complaints from the supporters.

Sporting director Ben Knapper has his feet firmly under the table at Carrow Road and he now makes his first big decision – what’s next?

It appears that Knapper is looking to the Danish Superliga to answer that question. Johannes Hoff Thorup is 35-years-old and part of an FC Nordsjaelland setup who pride themselves on looking to youth to get results, a plan that aligns with Knapper’s desire to lower the average playing age at City.

The Canary faithful are ready for a fresh start and Thorup’s first task will be to get those fans firmly behind his plan.
