Worst Norwich trainer handed Porsche! But with a twist ...

Norwich City boss Paul Lambert's team spirit tactics have been revealed.

The worst trainer at the Canaries each week has to wear a "donkey" shirt before being forced to drive into training each day in an old clapped-out £1,000 car - a white 1980s Porsche 924.

Midfield star Elliott Bennett, who scored the winner in their 2-1 win over Spurs on Easter Monday, explained: "Every Friday we have a young v old match.

"If, say, the young lads win, they get to choose a player from the old lads who has been the worst trainer.

"Everyone votes and you then have to wear a "donkey of the week" shirt and drive the banged-up car. We all clubbed together and paid £50 each as it cost £1000.

"It does not start all the time and there have been a few problems. I have not driven it yet - thankfully - but there are still a few weeks to go.

"Steve Morison gets voted a lot but much of the time, very unfairly. It seems to be the strikers more than the defenders who get voted.

"The players drive it to training. I am not sure if you would get it to the city centre."
