Hughes: Man City owners here for long-term

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes has no doubts the club's owners are in it for the long-term.

As there is no stated plan in place, it is difficult to know exactly what the Abu Dhabi United Group want in return for their massive investment, which is approaching £500million so far, with the promise of much more to come.

But Hughes said: "It has been evident in the year that we have worked together that this is a long term plan.

"It is not going to happen overnight. The owners are very understanding of that.

"They are excited by how far we have progressed in a short space of time. But they know it is a long-term thing.

"We have put a platform in place to ensure we have success in future."
