They were due to mark winning the Sky Bet Championship by leading a party through the city on a bus painted in the club’s yellow colours and emblazoned with the words “We Are Premier League”.

Manager Daniel Farke, who was under pressure at the start of the season, fought back tears and said at Monday’s parade: “I have no words.

Midfielder Kenny McLean also took to the microphone to declare himself the local mayor.

“I am now the mayor of Norwich,” he said to the cheering crowd. “What do you guys want (introduced to the city)?
