Hughes Thinks Blackburn Can Escape The Drop

Mark Hughes has acknowledged that his old side Rovers gave his current side Manchester City a tough game and will also in his eyes climb the table sooner rather than later.

Mark Hughes, speaking to the Lancashire Evening Telegraph, said - "I expected a really tough game coming here, of course I did, and the big surprise for me is the fact they are down there.

"The players, the team, I know their qualities very well. They will be disappointed they have not got the three points but they have the qualities that will get them out of trouble, I am convinced by that.

"Blackburn Rovers are a top ten Premier League side and I have no doubt they will climb the table."

Promising words from a man that knows the side better than most people do. I for one think he is right.

Kind words from Sparky. I know he doesnt regret leaving us but at least he acknowledged the quality of the side he left.

i think hughes should concentrate on his own team and job, with all the money he has spent he should of been sacked along with ince, grass is not always greener on the other side
