Hughes on Why He Left!

Hughes on Why He Left!

I`ve often wondered why Mark Hughes chose to walk away from Craven Cottage without, at the time, giving a reason.

Today, in the press, Hughes has spilled the bean son why he chose to leave rather than sign a new contract.

It would seem that Hughes wasn`t convinced that the ambition of the club matched his, also, it appears Hughes was worried that the club was sliding towards a dark place, seemingly because of the age of most of the squad, prompting Hughes to comment,

"People assumed I was hoping to get the Villa job but that was never the case."

"I felt my ambition for where I wanted to take the club was not matched. Historically, Fulham was a club happy to be in the Premier League - that was their ambition but it was not my ambition for them."

"My view was that with a little bit of investment and a little bit of longevity in terms of my tenure, they could be middle to top half."

"My worry was that maybe the team would go off the side of a cliff, which wasn`t something I wanted to be involved in."


All I`ll say is that I`m pretty certain nothing much had changed since he took over - so why the change of tact?

What pathetic reasoning from Hughes. No loyalty. Also show an alarming lack of ambition and drive on his part!
