Former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City manager Mark Hughes was officially unveiled as the newest boss at Fulham. His move to Craven Cottage, after eight months without a job, was announced earlier this summer. Hughes steps into a very difficult situation as Fulham had never before seen the kind of success brought by Roy Hodgson over the past few seasons. Between a top-seven finish in the Premier League and an appearance in the Europa League final in May, the Cottagers performed far beyond the usual expectations. Now with Hodgson gone, the new expectations of the potential for further European football and top-ten finishes falls squarely on Hughes. The former Manchester United star and Wales manager has already taken shots at his former employers at Eastlands while simultaneously angling for Roque Santa Cruz. Whether or not Hughes can bring Santa Cruz to Fulham remains to be seen, but if it does work out, it will be the third time the manager has signed the Paraguayan in his managerial career.
