Terry Brown insists he bears no grudges and remains an AFC Wimbledon fan despite his sacking on Wednesday.
The man who guided Wimbledon into the Football League was axed after more than five years in charge following a run of six defeats in seven matches.
"I really feel as a manager that you have a timespan at a club, unless you are someone like Sir Alex Ferguson or Arsene Wenger and can continually be successful," he said.
"There comes a point when it is time to move on and maybe a club needs someone else.
"I may have a heavy heart at the moment, but I will be at Wycombe on Saturday supporting the boys.
"The fans have been absolutely fantastic to me as they were even singing my name when things were not going well and it looked like I would be leaving.
"I will still look for Wimbledon's results and will still come and visit even if I find another club.
"It is not a time for being despondent about leaving the club, it is time to remember the fantastic times we have had here."
