Stoke boss Hughes happy more British coaches getting Premier League chance

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is happy seeing British coaches get their chance in the Premier League.

Hughes will face Garry Monk's Swansea City tonight.

He said: "It's good to see a British manager getting a chance.

"British coaches have invested time and money and no little effort to get qualified with badges but a lot of good people got passed over.

"When foreign managers get positions they bring in their own staff so there are less opportunities for British coaches. But in my view British coaching is very good and in a lot of aspects we are probably ahead of the game, ahead of the so-called big nations.

"So when a young aspiring coach gets an opportunity I feel it's a good thing. It was a similar situation with Tim Sherwood at Tottenham."
