“Mark Hughes was sacked by Stoke last weekend after a 2-1 defeat away at Coventry in the Third Round of the FA Cup”
The Welshman was sacked by the club last weekend after a 2-1 defeat away at Coventry in the Third Round of the FA Cup.
Five defeats in their previous seven Premier League matches also played a part in the ending of his four-and-a-half-year tenure at the Britannia.
Next up for the Potters is a trip to Manchester United on Monday night, and the club have said they will ‘look to appoint a new manager as soon as possible’.
But who are the favourites to succeed Hughes?
Former Manchester City, Everton and West Ham bosses are in the running to take over.
