Cook backs Hughes

From today's Guardian.
Garry Cook, Manchester City's executive chairman, has given Mark Hughes a vote of confidence ahead of Thursday's Uefa Cup tie against Aalborg by insisting there are no plans to review the manager's position at the end of the season.

Cook, speaking at a fans' forum, said the club's owners in Abu Dhabi understood the need for continuity and are happy for Hughes to remain in place. The manager has come under sustained criticism from some supporters, but City's form has improved since January and Cook's announcement drew applause from the audience.

I was there at the Fans Forum and I have to say that both Gary Cook and Mark Hughes were very impressive. They are witty, articulate, worldy, politised and showed genuine concern for the fans.

I feel much reassured. Long may they continue
