Hughes eyes future Chelsea manager role

Former Manchester City and Fulham boss Mark Hughes has revealed he would love to manager Chelsea at some point in the future.

The Welsh manager has been out of a job since June after resigning from Fulham, saying at the time that “As a young, ambitious manager I wish to move on to further my experiences.”

However, he has not taken a role since then, and has instead been seen doing television punditry. Talking to the official Chelsea website, the former Blues striker revealed he was looking to return to management:

“I had my reasons for leaving my last post and I just hope that I get an opportunity then have a job where I can show a little bit of longevity because that’s what I’m looking for.” When asked whether Chelsea would be a preferred destination one day, he admitted: “Chelsea is a club I’ve got a very special affection for. Obviously I’ve had fantastic times when I was a player and as a manager you want to test yourself at the very top. And if in the future if it ever became possible for me to work here I’d be absolutely delighted because it’s an outstanding club.”
