FRANK LAMPARD is now the odds-on favourite to be the next Norwich manager.
That's according to bookmakers Betfair, who've installed the ex-Chelsea chief at 5/4 to take the reins at Carrow Road after Farke was sent packing this weekend.

Behind Lampard is Norwegian Kjetil Knutsen who is in charge of Bodø/Glimt.
Dean Smith is also in the mix after being sacked by Villa – he's in at 11/4.
Norwich have struggled to adapt to Premier League life, picking up their first win of the season on Saturday against Brentford.
The Canaries have lost eight of their 11 top-flight matches since winning the Championship with 97 points last season.
They are rock-bottom of the division despite snatching their first win of 2021-22 at Brentford on Saturday, just moments before Farke was given the boot.
The Canaries have scored a league-low five goals since returning to the top division and have conceded a league-high 26.
Norwich lost their main attacking threat in Emiliano Buendia to Aston Villa ahead of the 2021-22 campaign.
But they still spent £60million on new additions including Milot Rashica, Christos Tzolis and Josh Sargent.
Norwich next manager odds
- Frank Lampard 4/5
- Kjetil Knutsen 5/2
- Dean Smith 11/4
- Russell Martin 12/1
- Roy Hodgson 12/1
- Javi Gracia 25/1
- Nathan Jones 25/1
In fact, Norwich were the 11th highest spenders in Europe during the summer transfer window.
Despite that – and Farke guiding the Canaries a first win of the season on Saturday – the club are now without a boss.
