Hughes future in doubt despite win

Published Add your comment

Manchester City are to release a statement later this evening which is almost certain to confirm the dismissal of Mark Hughes.

Hughes' position has been under threat since Wednesday's abject performance at Tottenham and not even today's 4-3 win over Sunderland looks set to save him.

Roque Santa Cruz scored twice for the hosts, with Carlos Tevez and Craig Bellamy also on target. But Hughes now looks set to be sacked, paving the way for Roberto Mancini to revive the fortunes of a club who have spent £200million on new players since their Abu Dhabi owners took control 18 months ago.
