Hughes denies link to Bayern Munich job
Friday 18 March 2011
Mark Hughes insisted yesterday he has no intention of leaving Fulham this summer despite being widely linked with the manager's role at his former club, Bayern Munich.
Hughes is reportedly top of a three-man shortlist to succeed Louis van Gaal and is up against Bayer Leverkusen's Jupp Heynckes and the former Germany captain Matthias Sammer.
"It's very flattering but I'm quite happy doing what I'm doing," said Hughes, who played for Bayern on loan from Barcelona in the late 1980s,. "Sometimes, when a job becomes vacant then people look around to see whether there are any connections in terms of past playing careers or whatever. I think there's no more in it than that.
"If opportunities in the future present themselves, it would be part of my football education and something I'd want to do," he said. "But I'm not looking to do it at the moment. I'm enjoying my work. It's a great club and we're going in the right direction."
