Hughes appointed Stoke City manager
Mark Hughes has been appointed Stoke City manager, six months after being sacked by QPR.
He replaces fellow Welshman Tony Pulis, who left Stoke by mutual consent last week after seven years in charge at the Britannia Stadium.
Former Manchester City manager Hughes, 49, has been out of work since leaving QPR last November.
He endured a difficult time during his 11-month spell at Loftus Road, winning only eight of 34 games in charge.
