Although Mark Hughes is not believed to be the number one candidate, Stoke City have contacted Hughes to schedule an interview with the former QPR, Blackburn, Manchester City and Wales manager. Stoke are also believed to be considering Gus Poyet, Roberto Martinez and Malky Mackay as candidates for the position.
Whether it’s the fact that Stoke want to do their due diligence and have a conversation with Hughes, I don’t know. But it’s worrying that Stoke are even considering Hughes given his horrible management stint at Queens Park Rangers. Mark Hughes is not what Stoke City needs right now.
What do you think? Does Hughes get a bad rap? And does he deserve a chance? Who do you think should Stoke consider for the job instead? Give us your opinions in the comments section below.
