Everton fullback Hibbert not surprised Hughes succeeding at Fulham

Everton defender Tony Hibbert isn't surprised seeing Mark Hughes succeeding as manager of Fulham.

The long-serving defender reaches the 10th anniversary of his first debut later this month, and Hibbert can even remember Fulham boss Hughes' short stint at Goodison Park in 2000.

"Mark Hughes was here when I was here and I trained with him," he recalled to evertontv. "He has gone on to be a good manager at a number of clubs.

"It is a great influence when someone like that comes in. Seeing players like that when you are training, it was not just Mark Hughes, we had a lot of senior pros and you do look up to people who have done what they have in the game."
