‘We’ve still got so much to achieve’ – Webber is desperate for more success at Norwich City

Stuart Webber has assured Norwich City fans that there are many things he still intends to achieve before he even considers his potential exit in 2022.
City's ambitious sporting director signed a new contract last week and then revealed that he intends to seek a new challenge at the end of the 2021-22 season.
Having masterminded the Canaries' rise to the Premier League in spite of big financial challenges, Webber insists his job is far from finished at Carrow Road.
"We've achieved a lot but we've still got so much to achieve and I think that was the most exciting thing when I sat down with Delia and Michael," the 35-year-old explained.
"I said 'if you think this is enough, then that's not enough for me' because, as I've always said from day one, if you want to be average then don't get out of bed in the morning, I can't be doing with that.
"I've still got loads that I need to develop myself and get better at. I've let people down in the last two years and not been good enough in certain areas.
"We've still got so much to achieve: the training ground is not finished, we're not established in the Premier League, we've got nowhere near winning anything. Okay, we've won the Championship, but we've got loads to do."
The incredible atmosphere at the last Carrow Road game, an epic 3-2 win over champions Manchester City, illustrated City's evolution under the current leadership.
"The fans should be pushing even more to make this place like Stoke used to be in the Premier League, because teams used to hate going there, because of the atmosphere - okay because of the football as well," Webber continued. "So we've got loads to do together and I ask everyone to join us on that journey because I think it will be exciting.
"I think we've built up enough trust between all of us now, in terms of the media, the supporters, the staff here, the players - we all know we want the same thing.
"So let's constantly drive for that because the minute we stop, it will go backwards quite quickly and we can't allow that to happen because too much work has been put in so far."
