Norwich boss Hughton shocked by Mancini Man City sacking

Norwich City boss Chris Hughton admits he's shocked by the sacking of Roberto Mancini at Manchester City.

Norwich will be play at City tomorrow.

Hughton said: "I have to say I was very, very surprised.

"From what I have heard and from what I saw Mancini seemed to have brought some stability to the club. He had won trophies and so I was sure he was there for the long haul.

"That's why his departure was such a surprise."

The last nail in the City manager's coffin was the shock FA Cup Final defeat to Wigan.

And Hughton admitted: "I didn't think they would win the FA Cup comfortably but I honestly thought they would win it."
