"DMITRI Halajko has been appointed as Norwich City’s new Under-21s manager on a permanent basis.

The City Academy coach has been overseeing the Development Squad ahead

of the 2015-16 campaign, but will now take on the position full-time

with immediate effect.

Academy Manager, Gregg Broughton, told canaries.co.uk: “Dmitri has done a

fantastic job in pre-season to prepare the squad, and he was the

strongest candidate from our interview process.

“At this football club we want our teams to play a certain way, which

Dmitri understands from being within the Academy set-up. He’s an

excellent coach and educator, who the Football Association also think

very highly of.

“We wanted to have an outstanding young coach leading the Under-21s, as

that is a model now used successfully by teams such as Liverpool and

Chelsea. In Dmitri, we now have that system in place.”

Halajko, who is currently in his second spell at Colney Training Centre,

added: “I’m very pleased as it’s been a good start to pre-season, which

makes the role even more exciting for me.

“It’s been an enjoyable five weeks as the players have worked extremely

hard to apply themselves correctly. To have the opportunity to continue

that is something I’m really looking forward to.

“I’ve worked with Darren Huckerby and Graeme Murty for some time now, so

the synergy from Under-16s to Under-21s should align well. That’s what

we’re aiming for at this Academy.”

I''ve never heard of him. [:O]

I don''t know loads but I do know he tutored one of my coaching courses a few years back and has done a lot with The FA.

Very good youth coach.

Not very helpful but adds a bit I hope..

He has worked with the academy for a number of years for the u13/14/15 ages. I used to work at a school where a number of academy players studied and Dimitri was in delivering sessions most days

Coached with him and then against teams he coached while he was at Col U. A really talented coach and always had the time of day to talk things through. Was not surprised at all to see him snapped up by the FA and I know he was thought of highly by the likes of Pete Trevivian and John Alpress who have both gone on to senior positions within the FA coaching setup. Was part of the FA''s drive to push talented coaches into the younger ages groups where they would have the biggest impact on player development. I know he''s done his time with the younger age groups at Colney, will be interesting to see how he gets on in the black hole that is U21s football!
