Former Norwich boss Paul Lambert has said he is concerned Norwich fans are only hearing "one side of the story" over his summer departure.

Lambert's comments come after comments made about him by Norwich chairman Alan Bowkett over his departure from Carrow Road this summer.

Bowkett told a Norwich supporters' forum last night that Lambert was now taking the Canaries to tribunal and seeking £2m compensation for breach of contract and unfair dismissal.

Villa boss Paul Lambert admits to being "disappointed" at the comments and revealed he is also being sued by Norwich.

Lambert hit back and said today: "I'm extremely disappointed that senior officials at Norwich have made comments in relation to myself.

"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.

"What Norwich haven't made public is that they are suing me. It is disrespectful and wrong to that tribunal for me to comment anymore. That's the way I'm going to leave it.

"Am I concerned Norwich fans are only hearing one side of the story? In a word, yes."
