Cook: I can work with Man City chief Mackintosh

Garry Cook is confident there won't be any conflict with chief executive Alistair Mackintosh at Manchester City.

"There has been a lot of rhetoric about the ownership group, but my role is Executive Chairman, and Alistair Mackintosh is the Chief Executive of the Club," he told City's website.

"Manchester City is one of the greatest opportunities in the world of football today, the Chairman has a definitive view to make Manchester City one of the world's great clubs. He's made that quite clear, and his intentions are not only on the field but off it as well, and our number one plan was to get the best available coach. My role is to develop the global aspect of the business, it's a great club both on and off the field and we have a great opportunity with this manager (Mark Hughes).

"The biggest challenge for us was waiting for this moment. We moved quickly, we knew what we wanted and that was Mark. We have people working on other projects, and we are not in a position to comment on those at the moment, but more importantly we would not doing anything without the manager's input."
