Hughes expects long-term stay

19 March 2009 08:52
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes is confident his long-term future lies at Eastlands, but he is not pestering the club's hierarchy for a contract extension. Hughes has two years remaining on his current deal, however, it has been rumoured that City's billionaire owners the Abu Dhabi United Group could consider replacing the Welshman in the summer. City have endured an inconsistent season, struggling horribly away from home, which has added pressure on Hughes. But the former Blackburn boss - who is preparing his side for Thursday's second-leg meeting with Aalborg in the last 16 of the Uefa Cup - insists he is in no rush to gain the assurance of a fresh contract because he is convinced City's owners are impressed. "My future is the next two years here," Hughes said in the Daily Mirror. "I have two years left on my contract. I've not been banging on doors asking about a new contract, but I think they are pleased. "The view this season was to make progress and I think we've done that as a team. The chairman understands where we are."
