Fulham boss Mark Hughes admits he's no fan of the Europa League.

Hughes is unenthusiastic about the possibility of qualifying for the Europa League through the Fair Play table.

"It feels like a chore," said Hughes. "There's a point close to the end of the season where you're looking for a break so that you can come back refreshed."
