Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has rubbished reports claiming is set to quit Eastlands less than three months after taking over from Sven-Goran Eriksson.
With owner Thaksin Shinawatra’s future unclear, it had been claimed Hughes was considering leaving because of restrictions placed on his transfer budget.
Hughes told City’s official website: “There’s been a lot of rumours flying around but I am not going anywhere.
“There is a job to do here and I am looking forward to it.”
A warrant for Thaksin’s arrest has been issued in Thailand after he skipped a court hearing in Bangkok. He is reported to be seeking refuge in the UK, after he and his wife fled to Britain on Sunday.
Hughes added: “There is speculation around the club and that has been prevalent since I joined the club.
“From my own point of view I am very focused on what I am about and what I aim to achieve here and that means success on the pitch.
“Nothing whatsoever has changed in that respect and the football operation hasn’t changed since I signed for the club.
“Nor has my relationship with Garry Cook (the club’s executive chairman) and his team. We get on really well and continue to speak on a daily basis.
“I am the guy that makes the decisions in relation to the football, and they make the decisions in relation to the running of the club.”
