Williams Thanks And Wishes Hughes Well
Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams moved quickly to thank Mark Hughes for all that he did at Ewood Park and has wished him well for his time with Manchester City.
Whatever we might think about Hughes' decision to leave Ewood for Man City personally I do not feel this is the place for it (I mean this specific piece I've written but my own personal views will follow!!!), this is the place to merely thank Sparky for what he did and let Williams share his thoughts.
Williams told the Official Blackburn Rovers website: "We have enjoyed a first class, mutually beneficial relationship with Mark. He leaves the club in a strong position with three consecutive top ten finishes and an excellent squad of players.
"In turn, we have helped Mark to establish himself as one of the most sought after young British managers in the business, having previously had no club management experience.
"We wish him well. We would have liked him to stay on, but he made it clear he wanted a fresh challenge.
"Now our focus switches to the search for a successor. We have enjoyed eight years of success and stability with Graeme Souness and Mark and now it is important that we build on our strengths. We must make sure it is three successful appointments in a row."
