Career Summary

Mark Hughes was appointed as Stoke City manager on 30 May 2013, ahead of his ninth season at the helm of a Barclays Premier League club.

The former Wales international and Manchester United title-winning striker replaced Tony Pulis at the Britannia Stadium. The Potters are the fifth top flight club he has managed.

Hughes started his managerial career on a part-time basis with Wales and took on his first domestic job in 2004 with Blackburn Rovers. He led the club to three consecutive top ten finishes in the Premier League before taking charge of Manchester City in 2008.

He signed a wealth of international stars for the Blues and they finished eighth in the 2008/09 campaign before he was relieved of his duties in December 2009. In the 2010/11 campaign, he took charge of Fulham and led them to an impressive eighth place in the table, qualifying for the UEFA Europa League as a result.

Following his resignation from Craven Cottage in the summer of 2011, Hughes was appointed as manager of Queens Park Rangers in January 2012. He successfully guided the club to Premier League safety in the 2011/12 campaign. He was relieved of his duties in November 2012, with the club attempting to battle against relegation to the Championship.

The Welshman took charge of Stoke ahead of the 2013/14 campaign and guided the club to ninth, which was their first top half finish in the Barclays Premier League.
