Mark Hughes being touted for the vacancy at Tottenham proves he is a "great manager", according to Blackburn defender Christopher Samba.
The 43-year-old moved to distance himself from the speculation on Friday, much to the relief of Samba, who only this week committed his own future to Blackburn by signing a five-year contract.
"This proves he is a great manager," said the 23-year-old of the Spurs rumours.
"I think the boss wants to achieve something with us.
"He has been great here."
