New Fulham boss Mark Hughes says he had nothing to do with the amount spent at Manchester City during his reign.

Hughes is back in football after being sacked by City before Christmas.

He revealed: "My role changed in terms of player acquisition (at City). I was more about recommending players than doing deals. I wouldn't recommend how much should be paid.

"People always quote my record in terms of spending at Man City but I don't always understand that. The amounts paid were not directly influenced by me. On some occasions at City, players were presented to me who I didn't really have a direct input on.

"But you get a phone call and someone says, 'Would you like Robinho?' As a manager, yes, I would."
