Manchester United legend Mark Hughes has revealed that he is very happy with his managerial role at Stoke City despite speculation of interest from Chelsea.
Current Blues interim manager Guus Hiddink is expected to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season as the English champions continue their search for his replacement.
Hughes, along with a host of top managerial candidates, has been linked with the soon-to-be vacant role at the club, but he has now come out to play down his chances of leaving the Potters.
“It’s nice to be mentioned I suppose, because that reflects well maybe on me but more so on the players and how well they are doing, which is how it should be because we are having a decent season,” he is quoted by talkSPORT.
“But we are fully focused here and enjoying what we are doing.
“It is a good time to be at Stoke. Everybody feels we are going in the right direction and building something. So I’m very happy.”
Chelsea have been struggling since the start of the campaign and have already sacked iconic manager Jose Mourinho.
They are now sitting in 13th place in the Premier League table and are only seven points away from relegation battlers Newcastle United in 18th.
Following the admission of Hughes, who will see his contract at the Britannia Stadium expire in 2019, the Blues may need to consider other alternatives for the managerial hot-seat.
