The Aston Villa manager has claimed he was unfairly dismissed prior to his move from Carrow Road to the Midlands over the summer and is seeking compensation

Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert is set to take former club Norwich to a tribunal in order to get the £2 million compensation he feels he should have received when he left Carrow Road in the summer.

The Scot led the Canaries to back-to-back promotions before helping them secure their Premier League status last season in some style.

And, though he claims he was unfairly dismissed from his role prior to joining Villa, Norwich chairman Alan Bowkett insists the 43-year-old in fact breached his contract.

Bowkett told a fans’ forum on Thursday evening: “The manner of Paul Lambert’s departure is no surprise because he’s walked out on every club he’s ever managed.

“You can’t complain because you know what you’re getting, but I felt he could have left in a more dignified manner.”
