Daniel Farke admitted it will be a 'tough task' to rebuild Norwich in the Championship next season but is excited for the challenge of trying to get them back to the Premier League.
The Canaries' relegation back to the Sky Bet Championship was confirmed on Saturday with a 4-0 home defeat to West Ham.
Norwich do not have long to lick their wounds, with a trip to Chelsea up next on Tuesday, but Farke has started to think about the 2020-21 campaign.
'It is a tough task, without any doubt, because you can sense always when a club goes down the first year it is unbelievably difficult,' he said.
'It won't be easy because we have to rebuild the squad, rebuild the momentum and the players have suffered many disappointments, which is not good for confidence. But this is what you have to face after relegation.
'It is always tough and the good thing is we have 46 games to work on this rebuild. I expect especially the first games to be unbelievably difficult, but because of our values, our philosophy and principles this should lead us.'
