Cook happy after talks with Man City owner Thaksin

Manchester City supremo Garry Cook has returned from a trip to the Far East for talks with club owner Thaksin Shinawatra.

"It's been very useful to go out and sit down with the Chairman and give him my first impressions of the Club," Cook told City's website.

"Mark Hughes has hit the ground running, and he has been exceptionally busy over the last few days developing his plans on the playing and coaching front, together with creating a Carrington training ground that he is comfortable with.

"We have confirmed a prestigious friendly against Hamburg SV and will be making further announcements on pre-season games and other developments in the next week or so."
