Hughes anger stuns Blackburn players

Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes has cancelled planned days off for his players this week after their FA Cup humiliation against Coventry City.

The Lancashire Evening Telegraph says seething after what he described as an unacceptable second half performance, Hughes tore strips off his team during a ferocious post-match dressing down.

And the Rovers boss even scrapped plans to give the players a few days off this week, ordering them in for extra training instead.

One senior player said: "That's the angriest I've ever seen the manager.

"He slaughtered us, and had every right to do after a performance like that."
