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."
