The winger told Sky Sports News: "He is a great man and everyone in the game respects him as a gentleman. He brought me here and gave me my chance.
"He has been involved in the game for 30 or 40 years so he knows exactly the way the game goes. I think the press create an atmosphere and Chris was under a little bit of pressure.
"As a footballer you need to go in and do your job, no matter who is in charge. You need to have that fire and burning desire inside to win a football match. Neil Adams is the manager now and everybody is right behind him."
Norwich face Fulham at Craven Cottage tomorrow afternoon.
