Mark Hughes

Where is Mark Hughes now?

Mark Hughes retired from playing in 2002 at the age of 39 having already taken his first steps into management as the Wales national manager in 1999.

Hughes left the national team in 2004 to take charge of his last playing club, Blackburn Rovers until 2008 when he left to take the reigns at Manchester City.

After two years at Manchester City, Hughes was sacked after a run of just two victories in 11 games but he was back in football just six months later when he was appointed manager of Fulham after Roy Hodgson had left to join Liverpool.

Hughes resigned from Fulham in June 2011 after expressing his desire to further his ambitions with another club.

In January 2012, Mark Hughes accepted the managerial post at Queens Park Rangers, replacing Neil Warnock and managed to keep them in the Premier League by staving off relegation on the last day of the season.

Unfortunately Hughes was sacked 10 months later after a terrible start to the season where the team failed to register a win despite huge investment in players.

In May 2013, Mark Hughes was back in football when he replaced Tony Pulis as Stoke City manager.

In his first season with the club he finished in 9th position which was Stoke City’s highest league position since the 1974-75 season.
