Norwich City warned not to 'live in the past'

Norwich City manager Alex Neil fears his players may be "living in the past" as they try and regain their place in the Premier League.

The Canaries slipped to 8th in the SkyBet Championship after losing 2-1 at home to Brentford on Saturday (January 24). It was Neil's first defeat since replacing Neil Adams at the helm.

Neil claimed Brentford were 'hungrier' than his team, but the defeat is also a wake-up call to his players.

"It doesn't matter where you've played. It doesn't matter what you've done then, it's what you do now.

The squad, for instance. A lot of people talking seem to live off that they played in the Premier League. But the bottom line is they're not in the Premier League. They're in the Championship.

So the quicker we get used to that, the quicker we realise where we are, then hopefully the quicker we can turn it around and start pulling further up the table."

MK Dons manager Karl Robinson has admitted that Premier League side Newcastle United are interested in signing highly-rated midfielder Dele Alli.

The 18-year-old has attracted considerable interest from the top flight, but some reports have suggested that Newcastle could be about to jump to the front of the queue by tabling a £9million bid.

Robinson says that no official offer has been submitted yet however.

“There’s been a lot of talk over Dele and Newcastle United and certain clubs.

I think it’s a bit more than paper talk but there’s nothing that we’ve heard yet.”
