Alex Neil Expected To Keep His Job Even If Relegated

Following comments made to the media today by Norwich City Chairman Ed Balls it seems likely that even if City are relegated this season that manager Alex Neil is likely to remain in the hot seat

"Alex Neil is one of the best managers in British football. He's got our 100% support for this week and also in the coming months as we deal for next season," said Balls.

"But clearly it's been messy. When there's speculation all over the place, the board has to stand back and ask what's happened and what's our responsibility?"

Alex Neil admitted he would examine his own contribution if Norwich are relegated.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of Wednesday's match against Watford, Neil said: "At the end of the season I'll be judging how I've performed, how other people have performed and I'm pretty sure people will be judging me. That's normal in the Premier League."
