Aston Villa hires Lambert as new manager
Aston Villa has hired Paul Lambert as its manager, luring him
from Premier League rival Norwich.
Lambert has been appointed by American owner Randy Lerner to
replace Alex McLeish, who was fired last month after Villa narrowly
avoided relegation from the Premier League.
Lambert had been at Norwich for two years and steered the club
back into the top tier of English soccer. Norwich finished 12th
last month, four places higher than Villa.
