Kiely leaves Norwich as Dortmund II arrive en masse
Written by Ben Dirs — July 14, 2017
GOALKEEPING coach Dean Kiely has left Norwich by mutual consent, with Sporting Director Stuart Webber set to bring in another member of the Borussia Dortmund II backroom team.
Kiely, who joined the Canaries in March 2015, will reportedly be replaced by Dortmund’s Matthias Kleinsteiber. If he does make the switch, he will find a number of familiar faces at Carrow Road.
The first is, of course, Head Coach Daniel Farke, who brought his 32-year-old assistant Edmund Riemer with him to East Anglia. Chris Domogalla, who was listed as a physio at Dortmund II, recently arrived to replace the highly-experienced Nick Davies as Head of Sports Science.
Christian Fluthmann, who was Under-16s coach for Dortmund, has been appointed as first-team coach, with responsibility for technical and performance analysis. Frankie McAvoy left Norwich by mutual consent earlier this week.
Alan Irvine, who had been caretaker manager for much of last season, has already left “to pursue other opportunities,” while Strength and Conditioning Coach Adam Hearn left a week after the season finished. The recruitment department has also been revamped following Webber's appointment in April.
