Mark Hughes Signs New Contract At Southampton

Southampton manager Mark Hughes has penned a three-year deal at the South Coast club.

The former Manchester City, Fulham and Stoke City boss was initially given a short-term contract in March until the end of the just concluded season and he helped mastermind the club’s escape from relegation.

He has now been rewarded with a new contract alongside assistant manager Mark Bowen and first-team coach Eddie Niedzwiecki, who have both signed long-term contracts.

While speaking about signing a new deal, Hughes said: “We are thrilled to have signed new long-term contracts. It was the only option we considered having spent the last eight weeks here.”
