Shay Given has today said that IF Manchester City sack Mark Hughes in the near future, they could be making the biggest mistake they could make.
He told The Sun:
'It's not rocket science that if you keep changing your manager every year you are not going to get stability at the club,'
'I do not want to see what happened at Newcastle happening at Manchester City and I hope Mark Hughes is there for a long time.'
'The longest-serving manager I had at the club was Bobby Robson and they were probably the most successful years I had at the club'.
'Then it was all change again, another manager, new players new ideas and at the end of it the changing did not do a lot for anyone.'
Shay Given also underlined the fact that success does not happen over night and City will have to work at it to achieve big things. His fellow Irish team-mate Ireland also vowed to play his best stuff in a bid to keep Mark Hughes in charge.
Ireland told the Mirror:
'I want to win for myself, the team and especially for the gaffer because I think it's really important he stays.'
'I really enjoy playing under him. A lot of the players are the same and want to win, but there's the odd time when someone switches off and we concede goals.'
'It's really important we start peaking over the last three months of the season. If we want to finish high up the table we have to go on a run.'
It`s even clearer now that thing are not all dandy at City. When players start supporting the manager you know something`s about to happen. It will be interested to see if any foreign City players such as Robinho speak out defending the manager and wanting him to stay. I hope we don`t do a Chelsea and have a divided dressing room.
Is it time Mark Hughes left, or should he have the chance to prove his worth over the next couple of years.
