Paul Lambert`s employers at Norwich City have been so unsettled by speculation suggesting their mercurial manager could leave for Burnley that they have issued a statement.
The former Celtic player has gained a repletion for resigning from coaching jobs, quitting first with Wycombe and then sensationally this season at Colchester.
Following Owen Coyle`s move to Bolton, the Scot has now been linked with that vacancy.
Although the Norwich board say no approach from the Premiership side has come, Lambert is clearly very ambitious and has caught the eye in East Anglia, winning over sixty-perent of matches since he took charge.
The statement from director Michael Foulger, however, denies the possibility of Lambert moving on again this season. He told City’s official site: “We have had no approach for Paul. I’m really impressed by his commitment to Norwich City and the way he goes about his business and I want him to be the manager to take this club forward.“
Were Lambert to accept an approach from the club as willingly as he left Colchester last autumn, it would ironically leave City without a manager for the upcoming local derby fixture on January 16.
His stay at the Weston Homes lasted just 312 days, after which he was appointed by Colchester’s regional rivals on a rolling contract.
