thumbnail Hello,

The former Canaries and Manchester City boss passed away on Wednesday aged 79 and Carrow Road will pay its respects on Saturday with a minute's applause before the Liverpool game

Norwich City have confirmed that tributes to former manager John Bond will continue at Carrow Road on Saturday on the visit of Liverpool.

The former Canaries boss, who passed away on Wednesday aged 79, established the Norfolk club as a force in the top flight during the 1970s.

A minute's applause will take place prior to kick-off on Saturday after a minute's silence was observed before Wednesday's League Cup tie against Doncaster Rovers.

As a player, Bond made 444 appearances in a 16-year spell at West Ham before taking over as manager at Bournemouth, where he won the old Fourth Division in his first season. During his tenure at Carrow Road, he signed World Cup winner Martin Peters and also led the Canaries to the 1975 League Cup final, which they lost 1-0 to Aston Villa.

He took over at Manchester City in 1980, guiding them to Wembley and, after a 1-1 draw with Spurs in the FA Cup final, Ricky Villa scored a famous winner in the replay as City lost 3-2.

Bond's son, Kevin, also made 161 appearances for the Canaries.
