Just over seven months after being sacked after a difficult season at Manchester City, Mark Hughes has returned to football as manager of Fulham.

Last season, Roy Hodgson led the West London club to the final of the Europa League and mid-table respectability in the Premier League before leaving for Liverpool.

Former Tottenham boss Martin Jol was lined up to take the job, but opted to stay at Ajax.

The former Wales national team and Blackburn Rovers manager Hughes admits he has a hard act to follow, but he believes he is the right man for the challenge.

Fulham manager Mark Hughes said, "We're still very ambitious. I have ambitions to obviously always overachieve. Whichever club I've gone into I've tried to raise expectations and try and exceed them, and I'll be no different at Fulham. Obviously, last year's run in Europe was magnificent, it was a stand-out season in the history of Fulham. Obviously it will be difficult to replicate that in terms of domestic competition but that's something that we'll aim to do.
