Hughton insists Norwich would have stayed up

Former Norwich City manager Chris Hughton has said he would have kept the Canaries in the Premier League this season, Sky Sports has reported.

Hughton was sacked on Sunday after Norwich were beaten at home by fellow strugglers West Bromwich Albion. The result leaves Norwich one place above the bottom three with five games to play, five points clear of Fulham, who occupy the final place in the drop zone.


The Cottagers provide Norwich’s next opposition at Craven Cottage on Saturday with Norwich under the guidance of youth team coach Neil Adams. Their final four games of the season see fixtures against title challengers Liverpool and Chelsea, defending champions Manchester United and Champions League hopefuls Arsenal.


“I am naturally very disappointed to have lost my job, but immensely proud to have served as Norwich City's manager,” Hughton said in a statement. “I understand the recent frustrations, but I remained totally confident that we were on course to create history at the club and move into a fourth consecutive season in the Premier League.


“Collectively, we were ready for the challenge that the final five games presented and we believed we would reward the club and the supporters by achieving that objective.


“I now wish to reflect before preparing for the next challenge. However, what goes without saying is that I sincerely wish everyone connected to the club, from the owners and the board through to the supporters, who are the essence of every club, all the very best for the rest of this season and into the future.


“Norwich City is a great club and I feel honoured to have had the privilege of being its manager.”


Hughton previously managed Newcastle United and Birmingham City before replacing Paul Lambert at Carrow Road in 2012.
