Football News: Norwich Appoint FC Nordsjaelland Manager Johannes Hoff Thorup as New Head Coach

Norwich City have appointed FC Nordsjaelland manager Johannes Hoff Thorup as their new head coach. Thorup has signed a three-year contract at Carrow Road after the Canaries agreed a compensation package with the Danish Superliga side.

The move comes after former Norwich manager David Wagner was sacked less than 24 hours following his side’s 4-0 loss to Leeds United in the second leg of the Sky Bet Championship play-offs.

Thorup expressed his excitement about the new role, saying:

“I’m excited, I hope that the supporters are excited as well. I hope that we can create something together, it’s so important that they are proud of the team.”

The new Norwich boss also highlighted his connection with the club and city, stating:

“I feel the connection with the people, the club and the city. Everyone I have met with so far is so humble, nice and easy-going.”

Thorup, who has been in charge of Nordsjaelland since January 2023, will be joined at Norwich by assistant head coach Glen Riddersholm, who was most recently head coach of Swedish top-flight side IFK Norrkoping.
