Michael O’Neill is not going to be the next coach of Norwich City

The English Championship League club Norwich City has been searching around for a new head coach ever since Alex Neil was let go back on March of 2017.

Alan Irvine was the person that was selected as the caretaker coach but now that the season of 2016-17 has reached it’s end, it gives Norwich City the time that they need to appropriately appoint their new head coach.

The next season of the English League Championship is the 2017-18 which is scheduled to kick-off on August 5 of 2017.

One of the football figures that was rumored to be on the verge of becoming the new head coach of Norwich City was Michael O’Neil but the 47 year old tactician has emerged and shut down those claims as the Irish manager said:

“There has been no contact between myself and Norwich City. Realistically, it’s probably not what I would be looking for at this minute in time. I think the club is probably in the market for a head coach. I’m a manager’’

“I’ve managed my country for the last five years and I intend to manage my country going forward. Any approach would have to be made through the Irish FA and it is my understanding that has not happened.”

Michael O’Neil is the current manager of Northern Ireland and he has been in charge of the national side since 2011. He also has experience in taking over clubs that are or have competed in the Premier League in some point in time as Michael O’Neill used to be the head coach of Newcastle United and Wigan Athletic in different seasons.

This means that Norwich City will have to search for another manager and Michael O’Neill simply does not appear to be interested in taking over Norwich City.
