We Can't Cope With Being So Rich - Hughes

We Can't Cope With Being So Rich - Hughes

Google language translator


Manchester City manager Mark Hughes admits his team cannot cope with being labelled the richest club in the world.

With one league win in nine games, and with the Eastlands club nestled in the Premier League relegation zone, fans are quite rightly beginning to wonder if Sparky and his players are up to task of keeping the club in England's top-flight.

The Sun reported Hughes as saying...

"Being the richest club in the world does weigh heavily with some people. We have to be able to understand that the focus and profile of Manchester City is huge."

"Some will be able to deal with it but some will have a problem. I'll be looking to strengthen in the window. I want to bring good, quality players in."

"There is no guarantee but we do need help. There is a negative mindset and we need to move forward."

I don't think it is just some of the players who can not handle the pressure of being at "the worlds richest club". Things need sorting quickly, I hope Hughes can turn things round as I do think we need to try and stick with a manager long enough for his ideas to come into place, but how long can he be given. Surely the team haven't suddenly got so bad although the second half of last year wasn't great. We need to climb the table quickly which can be done with two or three good results but we just don't look like getting them at the moment and we need the result this side of the transfer window in my opinion.

What a clown hughes is. That comment just proves he isnt a big enough, good enough manager for city. No one speaks about spending money in january more than hughes himself (after every defeat) no wonder the players look shattered. If he cant cope with the burdens of billionaires, the fans and players certainly cant cope with is miss-management. If hughes cant handle the cash and big expectations of ADUG then he should be replaced asap with manager that can handle and win throphies with this pressure. Most of the squad can follow hughes out the door aswell.
