CEO praises the qualities of 'first choice' Adams

NORWICH City’s Board of Directors is ‘convinced’ its made the right decision in appointing Neil Adams as first-team manager, says Chief Executive David McNally.

His bullishness comes after admitting the Club went through a rigorous process to determine who was the right person for the role.

“We believe Neil is the right coach, with the right hunger, commitment and knowledge to take this club forward,” he told the press at Adams’ unveiling at Carrow Road on Friday.

“We’ve looked internationally and domestically at other candidates, we’ve interviewed a number of people, and we believe Neil is the right person to be selected.

“We’re convinced that we made the right choice – he was our first choice appointment.”

McNally doesn’t believe that Adams’ lack of managerial experience will hold him back, either.

“There are other managers that have taken on Premier League jobs with less experience than Neil,” he explained.

“There are certainly successful managers in the Championship and other parts of the Football League or indeed in Scotland and they’ve taken on big jobs without any managerial experience and been very successful.

“We’re convinced he’s got the right attributes to be successful for Norwich City as first-team manager.”
