Norwich City have today confirmed the departure of Richard Money as Academy Manager.

Money only joined the club in January of this year but he looks set to be replaced by Steve Weaver, who left the Huddersfield Academy on 3rd August.

I’m putting 2+2 together here and Money’s parting comments make me come up with 4.

‘If I’d met Stuart (Webber) 10 years ago I believe we would have formed a formidable team, but more than most I understand he needs someone he already has that type of relationship with to be in my key position right now’ Money told

“I supported Norwich as a boy and I enjoyed the opportunity working with the Academy, however, watching Daniel Farke over the past six weeks has rekindled my appetite for management again and is something I would like to be considered for once more. I managed to get two of my previous three clubs promoted and the other in the play-offs. I hope a club can recognise that and give me the opportunity to continue that success.’

Steve Weaver was appointed Academy Manager at Huddersfield in May 2016 by Stuart Webber with both men knowing each other from their time together at Wrexham. He also spent six years at Wolves, where I assume he also worked with Mr Webber.

I don’t know this is going to happen for definite but I reckon it’s a good shout.
