Mark Hughes claims he is unconcerned by reports that he could be replaced as Manchester City manager during the summer. City could end the season without a place in European football for next season which is likely to be a huge disappointment to the club's ambitions Middle Eastern owners. However, Hughes claims that stories suggesting he could possibly pay the price with his job are not a concern The former Blackburn Rovers and Wales boss only replaced former manager Sven-Goran Eriksson in the hot-seat last June. "I have two years left on my contract," he said. "People talking about me and my job is just water off a duck's back. I don't lose sleep over that. "I am comfortable with the length of contract that I have. It's not an issue I have tried to force. "The onus is not on me to demand extra years. If the club want to they will look at it. "I think we have made strides on the field and I have a stronger team than the one I inherited. "We are in a lot better shape to hit the ground running next season."
