Mark Hughes has been in charge of Stoke City since May of 2013 and ever since then, he has pushed the club to the club to the 9th spot of the Premier League for 3 successive seasons but in this current season, things have fallen apart as they have only been able to secure 2 victories out of their 9 opening league matches of the season.
Stoke City is currently positioned at the bottom spots of the Premier League and are closely entering the relegation zone which is a huge surprise for a club that has consistently been able to get into the top 10.
The current contract of Mark Hughes with Stoke City expires in 2019 and it does not look like he is in danger of being sacked anytime soon despite this extraordinarily underwhelming start of season as the chairman of the club, Peter Coates has stated that they fully support and believe that Mark Hughes will be able to pick things up and start winning games on a regular basis.
“We are obviously disappointed with the start we’ve made but Mark and the management team has our full support. He is a very experienced manager and knows what it takes to get results in the Premier League. It’s still very early in the season and while these results obviously can’t go on forever, we’re convinced that things will change.” Peter Coates of Stoke City said.
The spotlight is on Mark Hughes to start climbing spots in the Premier League but according to the chairman of Stoke City, they know that Hughes will make it happen. Having conceded 16 goals in 9 matches and only being able to score 9 goals is a sign that shows just how much the squad of Mark Hughes has been struggling in this season.
