Man City caretaker boss Brian Kidd admitted it has been an “emotional” end to the season for the club but is now looking forward.
City slumped to a 3-2 home defeat to Norwich in the final match of their anti-climactic Barclays Premier League campaign.
The club’s failure to defend the title they won last season led to manager Roberto Mancini’s sacking last Monday – two days after a 1-0 loss to Wigan in the FA Cup final.
Having already secured second spot in the table, City lacked spark as they were edged out by a more enterprising Canaries side.
Kidd said: “It’s been a really emotional week right through the club, and we can’t hide from that.
“Now is the time to look forward, put this season behind us and then see where we can improve.
“You look at it now that there is a new manager coming in – and hopefully that will be done quickly so he can assess what he needs.”
