Hughes Linked With West Ham And Aston Villa Moves

We are now fast approaching the end of the season and the merry-go-round is set to kick into action with Mark Hughes the Manager in demand at West Ham and Aston Villa as speculation continues to grow. Hughes has been out of work since being sacked from Man City in December and is thought to want to get back in the game this Summer with the Premier League is preferred destination as expected. Gianfranco Zola is under huge pressure at West Ham and is expected to be sacked in the Summer regardless of whether the Italian manages to keep the Hammers in the Premier League or not.

Mark Hughes has been featuring heavily in the Next West Ham Manager Odds for a number of weeks now and he may see the Hammers as the ideal team to start rebuilding his reputation in the top flight. Although Hughes was sacked from City he by no means did a bad job under pressure and should have no problems finding another club in the Premier League. The West Ham job will depend on their survival in the Premier League with Hughes very unlikely to want to drop down into the Championship at this stage of his career, Zola is confident he can keep the team up but that could ironically see him replaced with Mark Hughes at the first opportunity.

Hughes is a man in demand and is also being linked with a move to Aston Villa with Martin O'Neill's future at Villa Park now looking uncertain, O'Neill is thought to be unsettled at Villa and has admitted he will be sitting down to look at his future at the end of the season. O'Neill is on a rolling contract which basically means he can leave whenever he wants and he may feel he has taken Villa as far as he can as their Champions League challenge has faded somewhat in recent weeks. Rumours surrounding Hughes are saying that he could be the man to replace O'Neill should he go in the Summer and that is likely to be a job Hughes will not be able to turn down if he were given the chance.

Villa would be an interesting challenge for Hughes as he would be required to turn them into a Champions League team which will prove a very difficult task for any Manager, O Neill has done an excellent job at Villa Park and would be a tough act to follow. If West Ham manage to stay in the Premier League, The Sack Race believes this would be the better option for Hughes as he would get the chance to rebuild the squad to his liking with the full backing from the new owners at Upton Park.
