Bryan Gunn has confirmed he wants to carry on as Norwich City manager next season - even if the club is relegated.
The Canaries have two matches to try to save their Championship status, facing Reading in tomorrow night's televised game at Carrow Road (7.45) and wrapping up the campaign against Charlton Athletic at The Valley next Sunday (1.15pm).
But whatever happens over the next seven days, Gunn is certain he wants to be in the hot seat when City return to action in August.
“I'm manager of the football club and I would hope to be manager of the football club next season as well,” he said. “Yes, I still want the job.”
Asked whether he had been given any indication of his job prospects, he said: “You need to ask other people that but I want the job, no matter what.

“My ambition is to be managing in the Championship unless somebody's going to tell me different.”
Since taking over from the sacked Glenn Roeder in January, Gunn has been in charge for 17 league matches, with a record of five victories, five draws and seven defeats.
But he believes City may need to balance those wins and defeats by winning their last two games to give themselves the best opportunity of avoiding the drop into League One.
“If three points can be gained on Monday night that will give us the best chance of fighting and scratching on the last day of the season against Charlton,” he said.
