Hughes on his position at Southampton

during the The Emirates FA Cup Third Round match between Coventry City and Stoke City at Ricoh Arena on January 6, 2018 in Coventry, England.

The Saints boss believes that his work at the club will ensure his stay for a longer period of time than just the end of the season.

Southampton head coach Mark Hughes insists that he is relaxed regarding his current position at the club with his current agreement with the Saints running out at the end of the campaign. However, the manager plans on staying at St.Mary’s Stadium for a long period of time and believes that his work by the end of the 2017-18 season will help him in this aspect.

“I’d like to think that if we do the job here and we fulfil our remit then maybe there would be discussions about that, but that’s not any pressure I am trying to put on anyone else.” Hughes said, according to Sky.

“I just think that will be a consequence of whether or not we’re successful in this short period so I’m not concentrating on that.

“It’s just about the here and now and getting on with the job in hand.”
