Ipswich appoint new manager

Ipswich Town have announced that they have appointed Paul Lambert as their new manager.

The former Norwich boss has signed a contract that keeps him at Portman Road until the summer of 2021 and takes over just days after Paul Hurst was sacked.

Ipswich owner Marcus Evans said: “I am delighted that Paul has agreed to become manager of Ipswich Town.”

“He made it clear from our first conversation that he would relish the opportunity to come here.

“He is a very knowledgeable manager who has vast experience of the Championship as well as working for a number of years in the Premier League.

“In his time at Aston Villa he showed he could work and develop young players and his teams have always looked to play exciting football and those attributes fit our ethos here.

“He obviously enjoyed a lot of success at our local rivals and the aim for Paul and everyone at the Club is to see that repeated here – and bettered!

“The first priority though is to start climbing the table and I urge the supporters to get right behind our new manager and the players to strengthen our ability to do that.”
