No Rift Between Hughes and Tugay
Talk of a fall out between Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes and midfielder Tugay has been circulating recently, casting doubts over the maestros Rovers future. Hughes has played this down and still hopes (if not expects) Tugay will extend his stay.
Lack of first team football after a visibly frustrated Tugay was substituted against Aston Villa had seen speculation rise that perhaps The Turkish International may not extend his contract at Ewood Park after all (as had seemed highly likely not to long ago.) Hughes has said this is mere media speculation and he still expects Tugay to agree his contract-extension.
Speaking in the Lancashire Telegraph Hughes said:
"Tugay is always disappointed when you leave him out, and he is always disappointed when you take him off because he just wants to play football.
"But there's no issue there. I've explained the reasons and the thinking behind it, and he accepted that.
"He's still got a very important part to play here. His representatives have talked to John Williams in the last week so we'll see where we go on that.
Not everyone agrees but I still VERY much hope Tugay will be with Rovers next season.
