Dickov To Link Up With Sparky?
I was reading an interesting article in Thursdays Blackpool Gazette on the future of Paul Dickov and was heartened by some of his comments about Mark Hughes.
It had been thought that the 35-year-old, who won 10 caps with Scotland, was one of several players to leave Manchester City in an end of season exodus -but he could end up staying now Hughes has taken over.
Dickov is a big admirer of Hughes - and vice versa. He has backed Hughes to be a big success on taking over from Eriksson.
Dickov played under Hughes at Blackburn for two seasons and reckons the 44-year-old to be the best manager he has encountered in his near 20-year career.
Moreover, Dickov insists that Hughes will not let his United roots get in the way of making City a top six side - quite the opposite.
'He is the best that I have played under,' said Dickov, who started 50 games under Hughes at Rovers scoring 14 Premier League goals.
'His training and that of his coaching staff is different class and he commands great respect from players.'
'During my spell at Blackburn I was the fittest I have ever been. Hughesie has a great rapport with his squad, but he doesn't make allowances or do apologies.'
'The man is a born winner and he likes things done a certain way and expects players to buy into that philosophy.'
