Hughes a favourite for Stoke City job

Hughes a favourite for Stoke City job

Speculation as to Pulis’ replacement at Stoke City is certainly keeping everyone guessing with Mark Hughes being touted as favourite to make a move to the Britannia Stadium in the near future.

The 49-year-old has been unemployed since his sacking as QPR manager in Novermber, 2012. Hughes is set to succeed Tony Pulis, who left the club on by mutual consent after seven years in charge of the Potters.

Stoke have been disappointing in Premier League this season, as they only narrowly avoided relegation finishing in the 13th place, six points above the relegation zone.

According to the recent speculation Stoke City could unveil Mark Hughes as their new manager later this week.

Despite being criticized for signing big-money flops at QPR, Hughes has been a success at Blackburn, as he led his side to three back-to-back top-ten finishes. He made a switch from Ewood Park to Manchester City in 2008, but was axed for a string of poor results after just a year at helm. He then had a spell with Fulham before moving to QPR in 2012.

It however remains to be seen, whether Hughes will live up board’s expectations of reaching safe mid-table position with Stoke.
