Speculation in today's media is linking Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes with the now vacant job at Manchester City.
Stuart Pearce was sacked on Monday after two-years in charge, and with a takeover imminent Hughes is said to be one of the fancied men, if not the fancied man to spend the £30 million war chest that will reportedly be on offer. Others linked, and favoured are said to be former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri and former Wigan Athletic boss Paul Jewell, who quit on Monday. Louis van Gaal, Ronald Koeman and Gerard Houllier's names have also been mentioned.
The job that Hughes has done at Ewood Park during his time here has been so good that it is little wonder that he is linked with other jobs, and will continue to do so when they become available, but a move to the City of Manchester Stadium in unlikely for me.
With the money on offer for Sparky it could be tempting for him, but having taken us to Europe again next season (albeit with an Intertoto Cup route needed to qualify for the actual UEFA Cup proper) not to mention his previous ties, and in all likelihood his future ties with Manchester United I don't think we have too much to worry about this summer as regards to Sparky's future…
