ALEX NEIL STATEMENT
"It has been an honour and a privilege to have had the opportunity to manage Norwich City Football Club.
"Naturally, I feel very
disappointed to have lost my job. This current season has been one of
transition, with the club adjusting to the consequences of relegation from
the Premier League, as well as two chief executives moving on in a short
space of time.
"I have worked with some great
people at the club and have shared some fantastic memories with them.
I will always be very proud of our achievement of winning promotion, via the
playoffs at Wembley, and of having the opportunity to manage Norwich in
the Premier League. I would like to thank my coaching staff for their
hard work and loyalty and all the players and the staff throughout the
club for their efforts on and off the pitch.
"My thanks also go to club owners, Delia and Michael, for giving me the opportunity to manage Norwich City. I wish them every success for the future and hope that the club goes on to achieve the ambitions that the dedicated city and fans deserve.
The experience I have gained
at Norwich City will be invaluable to me and I look forward to my next
challenge in the game."
