English Premier League action resumes this weekend. Manchester United, who have had a less than exciting start to their season, are trying to climb back towards the top of the table. Stoke City manager Mark Hughes is familiar with Old Trafford. He played for Manchester United in two stints, including 256 games under Sir Alex Ferguson. He said it will be a bit weird not seeing him on the touch line.
“I am sure it will feel a little bit strange not to see him walking down the touchline waving to the crowd like he has always done,” said Stoke City manager Mark Hughes, via ESPN FC. “He is still in the background. I was at the Real Sociedad game on Wednesday night and I had a few words with him.
“He was always going to leave his post at some point and I think he is comfortable with the decision he has made. He has left them as reigning champions so they’re not in bad shape.”
