Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has heaped the praise on Norwich City manager Paul Lambert by saying that his counterpart has done an extremely brilliant job at the Canaries.

Paul Lambert has taken Norwich City from down in the bottom echelons of the English football division to the Premier league in a matter of three seasons.

Paul Lambert took over Norwich City when the club were extremely close to going down into the conference. However, since then Norwich City have achieved three promotions in a row to get into the Premier league. It is not like they have been struggling with time in the Premier league because Paul Lambert has been able to work out a strategy in order to survive in the top division of English football.

Norwich City are currently in the eighth position in the table, which is even more fantastic when you consider that the likes of Swansea and QPR, who were promoted along with them, are struggling down near the bottom of the table. Further, Paul Lambert has worked on a small budget and has been able to bring in players for extremely low sums of money. Still, they have achieved excellent results against the top teams as well.

“I’ve watched Norwich twice over the last few weeks and they are a good side. They have players who are relishing playing in the Premier League. They are playing with no inhibitions and they have a right go. They have players who can hurt you. The club can be really proud – not just Paul and the coaching staff, but the players and also their supporters, who have been wonderful,” Stoke City manager Tony Pulis said ahead of the match regarding Norwich City and Paul Lambert. Norwich still have the ability to qualify for the European places.
