Gunn given Canaries backing

21 Jan 2009 - 09:55:13

Norwich City have confirmed the appointment of Bryan Gunn as their new manager until the end of the season.

The 45-year-old former Canaries goalkeeper enjoyed a superb start to his reign as caretaker boss as City thrashed Barnsley 4-0 at the weekend, with the Carrow Road club handing Gunn a quick vote of confidence.

The Scotsman told the club's official website: "I'm a very proud man.

"I thought Saturday was an amazing experience and to be given the opportunity to re-live an experience like that whetted my appetite and left me with a serious decision to make about approaching the board for the full-time position.

"That decision - with the 100 per cent backing of my family - was a very easy one to make.

"I have been very fortunate during my 22-year long association with this club to have held a variety of roles, but this is the pinnacle.

"There is still a very difficult job to be done this season, but having witnessed the reaction of the players and the crowd on Saturday, we now have a great opportunity to move forward."

Gunn has confirmed that he will be assisted by former City midfielder Ian Crook, whom takes up the post of first-team coach.
