After just a week after Tony Pulis was relieved of his duties at the Britannia Stadium, Stoke City have a new manager.

Fellow Welshmen Mark Hughes has been appointed the new manager at Stoke City, and has signed a three year contract with the club.

Hughes, who has been without a club for six months following his sacking at Q.P.R., has also managed Blackburn Rovers, Fulham and Manchester City, whilst also managing his country Wales.

The 49-year-old Welshmen had a stellar playing career starring for the likes of Manchester United, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Chelsea.

Hughes admits he has a point to prove at Stoke.

“I have listened to what people have said about my managerial ability and I can assure you I will use that as a motivation.”

Hughes looks to continue to move the club forward and wants to make Stoke less goal shy and admits it won`t take much.

‘It’s not a case of wiping away all the hard work that’s been put in place in previous seasons. That would be crazy.

‘But I would like to think I can make them a bit more offensive and maybe that’s where the club hasn’t helped itself in the past by not scoring enough goals.’
