Championship strugglers Norwich City have sacked manager Glenn Roeder. A statement on the club's official website confirmed his contract had been terminated with immediate effect.
Chairman Roger Munby said: "We'd like to place on record our sincere gratitude and admiration for what Glenn and his staff achieved last season when they saved the Club from relegation against the odds.
"However this season the position has become untenable and it is with regret that the Board has decided to take this step. We are in the process of deciding who will take charge of the team for Saturday's Championship match against Barnsley at Carrow Road and a further announcement will be made about this in due course."
