Spurs host the Canaries at White Hart Lane tomorrow and while Hughton maintained the London side are a club he still holds in the highest regard after spending nearly three decades there, he insisted that he will be looking for a positive result.
"My feelings for that club will always be there," admitted Hughton.
"I spent a lot of time there very happily as a player, as an Under-21 coach, as a reserve-team coach and as a first-team coach and assistant manager.
"But it certainly doesn't affect my feelings going back on Saturday, a game I would like us to win and play very well."
New Norwich signing Harry Kane will be ineligible to play against his parent club.
