City will return to competition in August looking to reassert themselves under a new manager after surrendering their Barclays Premier League crown in 2012-13.

The club's disappointing campaign came to a low-key end as Norwich won 3-2 at the Etihad Stadium yesterday.

With the team already confirmed in second place in the table, City simply lacked sparkle after a draining week in which they lost an FA Cup final and a manager.

Rodwell expects the summer break and the appointment of Roberto Mancini's successor to reinvigorate the squad for next season.

The 22-year-old, whose first two goals for City could not prevent the loss to the Canaries, said: "The lads are disappointed with the result be we are all focused now for next season.

"Next season will be a big season for us and there will be a few changes.

"We'll see what happens. We'll be refreshed, have a good holiday and come back flying."
