mark hughes Mark Hughes Releases 7 Players From Stoke City Squad: Daily Soccer Report

New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has released seven players from Stoke City including notable names such as Jermaine Pennant, Rory Delap, Dean Whitehead, Mamady Sidibe, Matthew Upson and Carlo Nash.

On top of that, Stoke City have announced that six members of the club’s coaching staff have left the club including QPR legend Gerry Francis.

Hughes is expected to bring in his own coaching staff, which will likely include his right-hand man Mark Bowen.
