Norwich keeper Ruddy happy with Hughton arrival

Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy has welcomed new gaffer Chris Hughton.

Paul Lambert left the Canaries for Aston Villa this summer after guiding them to 12th in their first season back in the top flight.

But while the Glaswegian's departure was a blow, Ruddy admits Hughton's arrival may be just what Norwich need.

On his new manager, Ruddy said: "He seems very good to work for. He knows what he wants. He's brought a fantastic backroom staff with him as well. I can't wait for the season to get started.

"Regardless of whether the old manager stayed or not, the levels would have to have been maintained.

"With a new manager coming in it probably helps us in the sense that that second season syndrome might not be there because we're all eager to impress him as well.

"It's a clean slate for everybody so everyone is starting a fresh."
