Man City back Mark Hughes


Man City back Mark Hughes


Manchester City executive chairman Garry Cook has put his backing behind Mark Hughes, despite the Welshman remaining under pressure. City dropped into the relegation zone in December, and Hughes remains under pressure.

However, the club moved to deny the rumours that they were looking to get rid of Hughes: "People say 'is Mark going to stick around?

"He is the manager of the football club and is more than competent at his job.

"We are providing the tools he requires because he feels he needs more to go out and win games.

"Everyone knows what the rules are. If you are a striker and you don't score for three years you will probably find yourself elsewhere."
