“I feel the connection with the people, the club and the city. Everyone I have met so far is very humble, kind and calm.

“I have my ideas and my principles about the way we are going to play, but I am also here to hear some of the good things that have already been done.

“I have to make sure I’m very clear that this is something we do together and everyone needs to have that feeling.”

Thorup had been in charge of Nordsjaelland since January 2023, having risen from youth coach in 2015 to first-team assistant coach in 2021.

He will be joined at Norwich by assistant coach Glen Riddersholm, who was most recently coach of Swedish top-flight team IFK Norrkoping.
