Former Manchester United Ace Reveals Chelsea Dream

By on October 9, 2011

Mark Hughes has admitted he would love to manage Chelsea one day. The former Manchester United and Chelsea striker has already embarked on a career in management that has seen him take charge of Wales, Blackburn, Manchester City and most recently Fulham.

The 46-year old left Craven Cottage in the summer after turning down a contract extension and has not hidden his desire to take charge of the club he once played for one day.

“It would be very nice,” Hughes told Chelsea TV. “Chelsea is the club I have a very special affinity for. Obviously I had a fantastic time here as a player.

“As a manager you want to test yourself at the very top, so if in the future if it’s ever possible for me to work here then I would be absolutely delighted to because it’s an outstanding club.”

Hughes left most Fulham fans disappointed after walking out on the club after just one year in charge.

“I had my reasons for leaving my last post and I just hope that I get an opportunity to get a job in which I can show a bit of longevity because that’s what I’m looking for,” Hughes added.

Hughes scored 39 goals in 123 appearances for the Blues in the 1990s and also helped the club win the FA Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and League Cup.

    Funny that he should say that he would like to manage Chelsea and not United, some United had hopes of him taking over at OT, obviously he must think he’s not up to it.

    He isn’t the only one who thinks that of him. Abramovitch must be rolling around on the floor.

    could it be the money?

    As for MU: everyone (AF included) seems to think that there will be a rush of top managers after the job once AF retires. They obviously haven’t asked jose what he thinks of Manchester and its weather and anyway it will be a poisoned chalice just as was Busby’s succession and NO ONE will be good enough
