Hughes To Man City, Could It Really Happen?!?!

Hughes To Man City, Could It Really Happen?!?!

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes is now ALSO being linked with the vacant Manchester City job, with newspaper reports claiming an official approach has been made.

Sven Goran Eriksson has now officially been sacked (this being confirmed today), and the national media would have you understand that Man City want to make Hughes their next manager with their Thai owner Thaksin Shinawatra prepared to offer Sparky £3 million per year to lead their Premier League and UEFA Cup (something they have managed to scrape into via the Fair Play League) bids next season.

The thoughts from the media are that Sparky feels it is time to move on as he is frustrated with the lack of funds available to him at Ewood Park and although he doesn't crave the limelight and attention the time has come for his efforts to be fully recognised, which could mean leaving Rovers. An official approach has been made (according to the media) which Rovers have reluctantly accepted enabling Sparky to talk to Man City and he is expected to take over sometime this week???

I suspected that Chelsea could, and maybe would tempt him, Man City (despite all their supposed millions) was always going to be a BIG FAT NO for me, but maybe this will not be the case after all!!! Are you worried yet, because I am!!!

I had no worry that Sparky would leave Rovers for Man City, as I thought this quite simply WOULDN'T happen. Maybe it is just all the media attention this is getting but now I'm not so sure!!! I'm VERY worried now that Sparky will no longer be in charge at Ewood next season and I worry what the implications of the fallout player wise (people leaving!) will be?!?! He would be wasting his talent going to Man City though!

He's already at Blackburn dude lol! Why would he want to go to Man City though, after the way Sven Goran Eriksson has been treated I'd be very cautious on taking a job their if it was me. Chelsea would be different, Man City just seems "a waste of talent".

HDM... don;t worry it is newspaper hype... Mark is on holiday at the moment... Why would he be interested in City if Chelsea on the cards? I saw an atricle this morning... using a quote that Sparky made last year! As far as funds are concerned... he has been offered 10 mill without the need to sell any players... that's more than the likes of benitez has been given! Keep the faith he'll be here in August.

I'm still not sure that he'll leave you, but if he will then I think he'll come to us and not City.

The official statement from BRFC is that Hughes is keen to speak with City, and the board have given him permission to do so. Not good. Why would he want to speak if he wasn't interested. If he went his backroom staff would go with him (bowen, Hitchcock, Eddie Zi...).

I am still not sure. It is bad news for us but Hughes says "he wants to talk to them". It doesnt mean he is going just yet. Lets not panic... if he wants to be here he will say no. If he doesnt want to be here lets get someone in that does.
