Paul Lambert: Unhappy at comments made by Norwich chairman Alan Bowkett
Aston Villa boss Paul Lambert is unhappy at comments made by Norwich chairman Alan Bowkett over his departure from Carrow Road this summer.
Bowkett was highly critical of the nature of Lambert's exit and told a fans' forum on Thursday evening that the Scot was seeking £2m in compensation from the Canaries for breach of contract and unfair dismissal.
But Lambert revealed that he is being sued by Norwich following his decision to move to Villa Park and will have the full support of the League Manager's Association when the case goes to tribunal.
"I'm extremely disappointed that senior officials at Norwich have made comments in relation to myself," said Lambert. "I'll let him (Bowkett) say what he has got to say and we'll see what happens.
"It will go before the Premier League managers' tribunal. The LMA are acting on my behalf. They supported me at the time and still are.
"It is disrespectful and wrong to that tribunal for me to comment anymore. That's the way I'm going to leave it. My main concern is Aston Villa.
"What Norwich haven't made public is that they are suing me. Am I concerned Norwich fans are only hearing one side of the story? Yes."
