Blackburn boss Allardyce: Hughes under major pressure at Man City

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce says the pressure is on Mark Hughes to get the mix right at Manchester City.

He said: "There's no doubt City have the potential but the pressure is on Mark Hughes to manage it in the right way.

"That's the danger and we have all seen what happened with Real Madrid and the Galacticos, and it seems they are going that way again.

"Madrid buy a team to entertain not to win whereas Barcelona can win and entertain at the moment.

"Chelsea were buying to win when Abramovich came in and they got a manager in Jose Mourinho who knew how to win.

"He delivered two league titles very quickly - and that's the demand on Sparky."
