Mark Hughes Confirmed As New Fulham Manager

Mark Hughes has been confirmed as the new Manager of Fulham on a two-year contract and the former Man City Manager will need to get straight to work, the Sack Race reported earlier this week that Hughes was in line of the role and the Fulham board have acted quickly to get their man. Hughes will need to get straight to work with the Premier League season just a couple of weeks away, he will have a tough task on his hands though to improve on what Roy Hodgson achieved last year and he will need to bring in one or two new players to Craven Cottage.

Fulham's first choice for the role was Martin Jol but he was unable to leave Ajax leaving Mark Hughes in pole position, it looks like a good appointment for Fulham with Hughes having a good record as a Premier League Manager. He did well at Blackburn before having a decent spell at Man City, he was sacked from Eastlands but the big spending owners were looking to get a big name in as opposed to being sacked for poor performance.

The Fulham job is a good job for Hughes but at the same time it is a big challenge for the former Welsh Striker, it is hard to gauge what would be considered a successful season for Fulham with a top half finish expected to be his short term aim. They already have a good squad at Craven Cottage but he will be looking to add a few players to the squad, it is likely that he may want to go back to Man City to raid his former club of one or two players with the attraction of playing in London set to be a big lure.

Fulham fans will be pleased that the Managerial saga is now at an end and that Mark Hughes can now get his head down and focus on the new Premier League season, Roy Hodgson was a popular man at the Cottage but in Hughes they look to have secured a good young Manager who can take them onto the next level in the Premier League.
