Steve Kean wants the chance to bring Blackburn Rovers back up after their relegation last night.
Their 1-0 defeat to Wigan Athletic condemned Rovers to next season's Championship.
Kean said: "It is difficult to put into words what the atmosphere is like in the dressing room.
"A few things were thrown our way in the media last week, questioning our attitude, but I felt tonight we gave it a real good go.
"The disappointing thing is we couldn't take it to the last game.
"I will sit down with the owners and discuss a plan on how to assemble a squad to help us bounce back up straight away.
"We need to try to keep the majority of the squad together and add one or two experienced players that can help us, so from the first game of the season we are ready to bounce back and make sure we are in the division we should be in.
"I have spoken with the owners, like I do every day. We haven't mentioned what has happened tonight, but I am confident we will have a sit down and have a plan in place as quickly as possible."
