Norwich boss Smith: A crazy few weeks for me

Norwich City boss Dean Smith is hoping for some breathing space after their clash with Tottenham.

Smith admits November was a 'crazy' month on a personal level, after getting dismissed by Aston Villa and ending it in the running for the manger-of-the-month.

Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and his Villa successor, Steven Gerrard, were shortlisted, but only Guardiola bettered Norwich's combined eight point haul, which included Daniel Farke's winning swansong at Brentford.

“No, it just shows how football is. I've been involved in football long enough to know that there's some crazy moments and, you know, obviously, last month has been one of them," said Smith. “For me the best thing over the past month has been coming into this club and the welcome that myself and Shakey (Craig Shakespeare) have been given, and not just us but the families as well.

"Very, very warm club. And it's got so much potential as well, which is what attracted myself and Shakey to it. That, and the fact that from the minute we got on the grass the application and the attitude from the players has been first class."
