Cat Out Of Bag? Hiddink Agent Reveals Cook Contact

Cat Out Of Bag? Hiddink Agent Reveals Cook Contact



Many a Blue will be in grumpy Christmas form this week and the current wintry unease drifting around SportCity is likely to go up a notch with a Dutch revelation...

Whither now Mark Hughes and his relationship with the Manchester City hierarchy?

Russia coach Guus Hiddink's agent Cees Van Nieuwenhuizen has been on the blower to the Daily Torygraph with a lid lifting exclusive. Garry Cook, City CEO, has been sounding him out over the shrewd Dutchman's future...

'...Cook asked me if it would be worthwhile having a meeting to discuss the future and what might happen next summer. But I told him that Guus was contracted to Russia.'

There's the usual "happy where he is" follow ups in the quotes, but it transpires that Cook and Nieuwenhuizen worked for years together at sports giant Nike.

This has thrown up more questions than answers but in truth, the new era City have gone about their business discreetly outside of the odd faux pas on Cook's part. It could be he didn't know his erstwhile colleague as well as he might on the very subject of discretion.

This is the last thing the City management team need now the hacks have got a proper City defeat to drool over.

But if this story has a base, then it's abundantly clear that Mark Hughes' future as City boss is in serious doubt.

Give us a shout both here and in the VMC Forums with your take on this.

This story arose before they signed Hughes and When Dr t was in the chair, this is just a load of crap and the telegraph know it.

If that's the case, Buzz then I'd like to see a City statement as this story, being repeated everywhere flies directly to the heart of the club's leadership. Then again, this could all be about the agent trying to orchestrate a better deal with Russia.
