Neil Adams revealed he expects his Norwich City future to be resolved within the next four days after signing off his managerial stint with a 2-0 Premier League defeat to Arsenal.
Aaron Ramsey and Carl Jenkinson struck in the second half at Carrow Road to confirm the Canaries relegation to the Championship.
Adams picked up one point from his five matches after replacing Chris Hughton as Norwich finished third-from-bottom, three points adrift of West Brom, but the FA Youth Cup winning coach reiterated after watching his side’s home loss to the Gunners he wants to stay in charge.
“I have had no indication one way or the other,” he said. “No talks have taken place. I believe a decision will take place before the end of the week. We are off tomorrow and back in Tuesday and I have been told there is a process they must go through and that needs to be seen to its conclusion and I await the decision the same as everybody else. I have made my point clear. I would love to be manager of the club and involved with the first team. Again that is up to the board of directors.”
Adams admitted the Canaries were second best for the entire game against the FA Cup finalists.
“I thought the performance was flat today,” he said. “We set up okay to stop them playing but we didn’t retain the ball well enough to give them a problem and you always struggle against a team like Arsenal. They base their game on possession. It is one thing to stop them playing but we got it we gave it back too cheaply.
“That is going to tell eventually and the first goal is a fantastic strike. We were flat and it is for others to decide whether that was because of the situation. We wanted more than that. I wanted more. The quality was not there on the ball.”
