Less than 24 hours after his dismissal, Mark Hughes seemed complacent with Manchester City's decision.
"We were only 6th in the table and of course that's not good enough. Any manager who has that much money should be top of the table. I apologise for my shocking record of 2 losses in the last 12. I hope the fans can forgive me, I am embarrassed" Hughes revealed.
Of course, his departure came as a shock to few as Roberto Mancini was hidden in the corner of the home dugout during yesterday's 4-3 win over Sunderland. One City player was even overheard to say "yeah, Rob comes in to play darts on Wednesdays before meetings with the owners. It was only a matter of time."
