Mark Hughes has been unveiled to the world’s media as Manchester City’s new manager, and he has vowed that his City team will be an attacking one.
After arriving at the Carrington training ground early on Tuesday morning, Hughes told a packed press conference:
“I am absolutely delighted to be here, I have already had some great support from the fans and I’m pleased with the positive reaction to the appointment.
“They will know from my experiences as a manager that my teams work extremely hard and are committed, but I am an advocate of attacking football. The players that have played for me week-in, week-out in the past are technical players that play the type of football that I want to be played. Hopefully the fans will see that very quickly in the teams that I will produce.
When asked about the speed of his appointment, Hughes added: “It was made plain to me very, very quickly that there was a huge project here that I wanted to be part of, it was a very easy decision for me. I am at a club that matches my ambitions.”
