Robbie Savage suggests Stoke City manager Mark Hughes for the Everton managerial job.

Former Leicester City and Derby County midfielder Robbie Savage said on the BBC 606 5 live show on Saturday evening (April 16) that Stoke City boss Mark Hughes would be a good managerial appointment for Everton.

While discussing the future of Everton manager Roberto Martinez, Savage said: “Listen, they have still got Martinez, but another one you are looking at, somebody with history at the club.

"You know who I am going to say? Mark Hughes. I think he will stay at Stoke, but I am just saying.”

Hughes, who played for Everton in 2000, knows the Premier League inside out and is doing a great job at Stoke at the moment.

The Potters have transformed under him, and play very good and entertaining football.

Stoke are in the hunt for an European place this season, and this underlines the impact Hughes has made at the Britannia Stadium.

As Savage suggests, the former Manchester United forward is unlikely to leave Stoke anytime soon, but he does look like a manager who would fit Everton perfectly if the Toffees decide to part company with Martinez at the end of the season.

The football Hughes’s teams have been played over the years have been quite good, and the Welshman has achieved some success as well.
