Fast passing – Issue 25 (August 2012)
Chris Hughton was installed as the new manager of Barclays Premier League side Norwich City at the start of June.
The 53-year-old’s third managerial appointment came after successful spells at Birmingham City and Newcastle United, following on from a 16-year professional playing career that saw him turn out for Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Brentford.
A rampaging full-back, Hughton also made 53 appearances for the Republic of Ireland, but upon hanging up his boots in 1993 went into coaching, and spent 14 years back at Tottenham, twice taking temporary change of first-team matters.
Switching to Newcastle, he earned the northeast club promotion back to the Premier League in 2010, and came close to repeating the trick with Birmingham last season, but the Blues lost out in the play-offs.
Now, Hughton is looking to apply his brand of positive, high tempo attacking football to Norwich.
