Mark Hughes Appointed New Fulham Manager

Mark Hughes has been appointed as the new manager of Premier League club Fulham for two years. The 46-year-old has previous experience of managing Wales national team and two Premier League clubs: Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City.

Fulham has been on the lookout for a new manager to replace Roy Hodgson who last month joined Liverpool. The West London club failed to sign Ajax manager Martin Jol. Former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson, USA coach Bob Bradley and former Germany coach Jurgen Klinsmann were also in Fulham’s shortlist, but Hughes has been picked up as the new manager.

Mark Hughes had been out of job since losing the Manchester City job last December. The former Manchester United player would start his job very soon and his first assignment would be a friendly affair against German side Werder Bremen on 7 August.

Mark Hughes is delighted to have appointed in his new job. He said to the media, “I have discussed my aspirations with both the chairman and (chief executive) Alistair Mackintosh and believe that we are aligned in our aims for what can realistically be achieved here.

I am joining on the back of two of the most successful seasons in the club's history and that in itself brings with it the challenges of expectation and ambition. I am confident that with some additions to the squad, hard work and commitment, we can move this club forward in the right direction. I hope the Fulham fans will enjoy some special times during this season's campaign and we will work hard to achieve that.”

Fulham has had two highly successful seasons recently under the guidance of Hodgson. So, expectations from the new manager would be very high. Fulham became runners up of UEFA Europa League last season, even though finished 12th in the Premier League.
