Sparky On The Brink
Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes seems to be on the brink of leaving Ewood Park to take over at Manchester City after Rovers agreed a compensation fee with them, which allows them the chance to now talk with him.
We ALWAYS knew that one day the time would come when the extraordinary job that Hughes has done with Rovers would lead to him moving on to pastures new, and we mostly felt that it would be to Manchester. However, NO ONE expected it to be the blue half of it as now looks increasingly more likely after Rovers issued a statement confirming that a compensation amount (thought to be £5 million) has been agreed with Man City and he will now talk with them.
The club statement on the Official Blackburn Rovers Website read: "Blackburn Rovers can confirm that they have reached an agreement with Manchester City on compensation terms for Mark Hughes.
"As a consequence the club have given Manchester City permission to speak to Mark."
Until Sparky goes we mustn't give up all hope but it's not looking promising at all now is it and even if he didn't go to Man City I personally think it could be VERY difficult for him to return to Ewood and carry on as our manager?!?!
