Stoke boss Mark Hughes insists that he is not resentful towards his former club Manchester City ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash between the sides.

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has insisted that he does not hold a grudge against his former club Manchester City ahead of this weekend's Premier League clash between the two sides.

Hughes was replaced by Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium in 2009 after just over a year in charge of the Blues.

"The longer time has gone on, I think they look back and realise I did a decent job," Hughes told The Sentinel.

"There was a change of ownership, which wasn't easy. Also, the circumstances when I went were different to what they were portrayed to me.

"I don't hold any resentment about that. The fact was I drew too many games and gave them the opportunity to go in a different direction."

Stoke welcome Manchester City to the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
