Wednesday June 4 will go down in the history books when ex-Manchester United legend Mark Hughes became a Blue.

Sparky has signed a three-year deal and takes up the position of City manager with immediate effect.

‘He’s an outstanding manager who has achieved many things with Blackburn,’ Thaksin told the Daily Mail.

‘Mark was always the first choice of our new executive chairman, Garry Cook. Together they will make a great team. They will both prove to be excellent acquisitions, I’m sure.’

The 44-year-old Welshman will hold a press conference first thing Thursday (June 5) morning. Exact timings are yet to be confirmed.

Vital Manchester City would like to take this opportunity to welcome Mark and wish him all the success in the world.
