Neil Warnock believes Queens Park Rangers have made the wrong decision in sacking him, feeling their fortunes may not change under a new manager.
QPR's board decided to axe Warnock on Sunday night after 22 months in charge at Loftus Road with the club sitting just one place above the drop zone.
Warnock accepts responsibility for QPR's struggles this term, but insists he was confident of turning things around in the second half of the season.
"I take full responsibility for what's happened and where we are," Warnock told Sky Sports News. "We are in the Premier League and it's a fabulous league.
"I think I have probably done 10 years' work in 22 months the things I have had to put up with and deal with at the club.
"I am disappointed to leave now. I could see the hard work we had done with two or three additions, but that's life.
"I just want to thank all the fans, the fans have been fantastic with the response over the last few days.
"I would like to give a massive thank you to everybody at QPR and it's been an amazing ride, where we were when I took over and what's happened.
"I will have to write a book I think. It should be a good read."
Mark Hughes is expected to be appointed as Warnock's successor, but the former Sheffield United boss believes a new manager does not mean guaranteed success.
"I think at the end of the day somebody buys the club and Tony [Fernandes] has a decision to make and he stands by or falls [by it]," added Warnock.
"I think it is the wrong decision because I am biased.
"People think every time you get a new manager it works, but we will have to see to see.
"I still felt very confident.
"We have been so close in the last ten games to nearly winning every game, but individual errors etc.
"But at the end of the day decisions have to be made and I get on with it."
