After declining requests to talk to the local media, Norwich City released an interview with chief executive Jez Moxey. Here is how Norwich City fans reacted to that video.
Norwich City fans clamouring for word from Carrow Road got it when chief executive Jez Moxey, via the club's TV channel, effectively told them they wouldn't get the other thing they were demanding: the head of manager Alex Neil.
Neil, said Moxey, would be given time to arrest the decline in City's Championship fortunes. There were no iron-clad 'he will not be sacked' guarantees, of course. But the message was clear: he will be given time.
'Whilst we are prepared to take whatever action is necessary to improve results we don't believe in just following the norm in football and replacing our manager to solve an immediate problem,' said Moxey.
Moxey said: 'I have spent a lot of time with Alex and I have seen many of his qualities. He led this club to promotion before and we believe he can do it again.'
