'Lambert Sues City For Up To £2m'
'I will always be proud of what we have done as a group - it is a part of my life that will stay with me and I will never forget it.
'I have nothing but praise for Norwich. The fanbase was always pivotal to what happened.
'I had my reasons [for leaving], which will probably remain private and I don't want to keep going back to that.'
But it seems that those reasons which would 'probably remain private' are now about to appear in the open.
At a Fans Forum at Carrow Road on Thursday evening, Norwich City Chairman, Alan Bowkett told around 130 supporters that Lambert is suing the club for around £1.5m - £2m.
At this stage it is not known exactly what for, other than "Breach of contract" - or even if he is actually entitled to it. No doubt it will all come out in the wash.
It seems that the acrimonious end to Paul Lambert's tenure as City manager is about to become even more so.
Neither Lambert or Aston Villa have made any comment at this stage.
I guess that the upcoming meeting at Villa Park later this month will now be even tastier...
