Malky Mackay says he's ready to get back into management and insists he'll use the experience of his tumultuous time at Cardiff at his next club.
The former Watford boss was sacked after falling out with Cardiff owner Vincent Tan earlier this season - but now a host of clubs, including his old team Norwich, are looking for new managers and he is optimistic about being back in the game soon.
"I really enjoyed testing myself against the best coaches in the world," he told Sky Sports News. "We had some tough games and there's times during those games that you really see the difference in world class players.
"Other times we competed really well and we managed to beat the champions (Manchester City), which Cardiff should be proud of."
Norwich were relegated to the Championship alongside Cardiff and when asked about the possibility of returning to Carrow Road, Mackay added: "There are various teams at the moment out there who don't have a manager and like everyone else I just have to wait and see.
"But I'm looking to get back into management as quickly as possible."
