Smith sold on Hughes vision

Published Add your comment

Tommy Smith is confident Mark Hughes can take QPR to another level after meeting his new manager for the first time.

Hughes wasted no time spelling out his ambitions to Rangers' players after signing a two-and-a-half year contract at Loftus Road and reportedly making a £7million bid for Blackburn defender Christopher Samba. The 48-year-old addressed his new squad at the club's Harlington training ground and winger Smith was impressed with what he heard.

Speaking about the appointment of the former Manchester United striker and Manchester City and Wales manager, Smith said: "I think it's a very positive appointment. To have a manager who's played at the very highest level, managed big teams, international teams as well, it's just great for everyone concerned and particularly for the players."
