Hughes rubbishes Man City quit claims

Mark Hughes has dismissed claims he is ready to quit Manchester City.

Hughes was reported to be on the brink of quitting the City of Manchester Stadium club due to concern over his control on transfers, and at a time when owner Thaksin Shinawatra's future appears unclear.

The former Blackburn manager said: "There have been a lot of rumours flying around but I am not going anywhere and I don't anticipate going anywhere.

"There is a job to do here and I am looking forward to it."

He told club website: "There is speculation around the club and that has been prevalent since I joined the club but from my own point of view I am very focused on what I am about and what I aim to achieve here and that means success on the pitch.

"Nothing whatsoever has changed in that respect and the football operation hasn't changed since I signed for the club. Nor has my relationship with Garry Cook and his team. We get on really well and continue to speak on a daily basis.

"I am the guy that makes the decisions in relation to the football, and they make the decisions in relation to the running of the club."
