Man Utd boss Ferguson: Hughes will bounce back
Hughes' managerial career looks in tatters having quit Fulham to join a club he expected to move into Champions League contention.
But his former manager at United believes ex-hitman Sparky is capable of rebuilding his reputation.
Ferguson insisted: "The one thing I am sure about is that Mark will be back.
"He's a fighter and you don't lose the kind of strength and character he possesses overnight."
