Hughes Hits Out At Manager Snobbery
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes has hit out at the growing number of foreign managers that are being turned to ahead of the British ones.
Hughes views this as "snobbery" against British managers and feels that this is another reason for the so called demise of the England game, as many overseas Leagues appoint mainly (on the whole) managers from that specific country but the Premier League is turning more and more towards foreign managers.
Hughes told the Daily Mirror: "There is a snobbery in favour of foreign managers here.
"Look, every British manager has respect for managers like Benitez and Ramos but the quality has to be right with other guys coming in, too.
"Maybe in other countries, they look after their own. And then they export coaches all over the world. We don't do that because the top jobs here don't go to British managers."
This is a problem that Sparky can't see changing anytime soon, as he feels this trend will keep on happening, which it probably will.
He added: "Sometimes familiarity breeds contempt for what we are trying to do. I think a lot of British managers would like that to change but I doubt it will in the short term."
