Youngster has endured a tough debut campaign in the north west.
Manchester City midfield player Jack Rodwell says that he is looking forward to making a fresh start at Eastlands under Roberto Mancini’s successor, reports the Daily Mirror.
The England international has only been at the club for one season, having been signed by the Italian from Everton last summer for just £12 million, however, the 22-year-old endured an injury-ravaged debut campaign in the north west.
But Rodwell, who made just the 11 Premier League appearances for City all season long, and only 15 overall in all competitions for the mega-rich top-flight outfit, is hoping that he will be able to turn over a new leaf under Mancini’s successor, who is expected to be Malaga boss Manuel Pellegrini.
And the highly-rated youngster, who was last week called up by England manager Roy Hodgson for next week’s friendly internationals against both the Republic of Ireland and then Brazil, is hoping for a much improved season next time around.
“It’s all about the future now. A new manager will come in and everyone is intrigued to see who that is going to be,” said Rodwell.
“It’s a fresh start for everyone and we will all be ‘on it’.
“The first game of next season everyone will be flying and we’ll do our best to prove ourselves to the manager. We just have to get on with our jobs.
“We’re on our way to New York, we have a couple of games over there against Chelsea, then we will all have a good holiday and a couple of international games.
“[In many ways] the season has just started for me. I’ve been back playing for the last few weeks and I just want more.
“We’ve got this last stint in New York, then I’ll have a good summer, so it’s a good time for me to relax.
“It’s been a frustrating season, but on a personal note it was a good game for me. We could have done with a different result, but I’m happy.”
