Hughes In The Running For Chelsea Job AGAIN!!!
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes is again on the shortlist to become the new manager at Chelsea following Avram Grant's sacking (as he was when Jose Mourinho left.)
Seeing Hughes' name in the running to take over other clubs is nothing new (and just goes to highlight what a superb job that he has been doing at Ewood Park) but personally I can't see him being the man for Chelsea at this point in time as I feel they will go for a bigger name than Hughes. Although Sparky a massive name in football terms of his reputation as a player, despite his stock rising all the time as a manager I don't quite feel it is big enough at this point in time for Chelsea, something that I'm MORE than happy with.
Sparky is currently 8-1 joint fourth favourite (along with Sven Goran Eriksson and Phil Scolari) with the bookmarkers behind favourite Frank Rijkaard, Roberto Mancini and Guus Hiddink.
The newspapers understand that no official approach has been made, and until such time Rovers WILL NOT be commenting on any speculation linking Sparky with the vacant post at Stamford Bridge.
