Manager says Club must move on from relegation

NEIL Adams says focus must quickly turn to the future after the Club’s relegation to the Championship was confirmed with a 2-0 defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

Second half goals from Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson settled a quiet match at Carrow Road, but the Canaries’ boss said after the game that he expects to find out whether he’s the man to guide them as permanent manager sooner rather than later.

“The quicker the better, there’s a job to be done now,” he told Norwich City TV after the final whistle.

“I believe a decision is going to be made before the end of the week. There’s a process there to be done, and the Chairman, the Chief Executive and the board of Directors will go through that process.

“There are players that will move out and there’s players that will need to come in, all so that a squad can be assembled that is good enough to get this Club back in the Premier League.”

Adams admitted he didn’t see everything he wanted to in the reverse to Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, but praised the performances of John Ruddy and debutant Jamar Loza.

“Obviously we’ve tried to change it up in the second half, and I thought Jamar Loza did particularly well when he came on,” he added.

“John was outstanding. He made some outstanding from some strikes you’re thinking are going in. He looked great with his feet too, and he kept us in the game.

“I think we were a bit flat today. We started out ok, we stopped them playing in the manner we wanted to but we didn’t keep the ball well enough.

“There’s disappointment, of course. I don’t think we really gave Arsenal enough of a problem until the later stages of the game.”
