Mark Hughes, Biography, legend
Biography, Man Utd, Mark Hughes - Leslie Mark Hughes, He born 1 November 1963 in Ruabon, nicknamed Sparky. Hughes is a former Welsh international football player and the current manager of Fulham having joined on 29 July 2010. As an international footballer, he made 72 appearances and scored 16 goals.

During his playing career he was most noted for two spells at Man United, but he also played for Barcelona and Bayern Munich, as well as the English clubs Chelsea, Southampton, Everton and finally Blackburn Rovers, before retiring in 2002.

Hughes joined Manchester United after leaving school in the summer of 1980, having been spotted by the team's North Wales talent scout Hugh Roberts. However he did not make his first team debut for three years — in a 1–1 draw away to Oxford United in the FA Cup, in the 1983–84 season. Like many other United legends, "Sparky" quickly became a favourite by scoring on his debut.

Hughes managed a further 20 goals in the 1985–86 season, where they led until February having won their first 10 league games of the season, before a dismal second half of the season saw them slip into fourth place in the final table. That season saw him score 17 goals in the Football League First Division – it would remain the highest goals tally in a season throughout his career.

Mark Hughes won a host of medals during his playing career, including two Premier League title medals, four FA Cups, three Carling Cups and two European Cup Winners' Cups. He also collected an FA Cup runners-up medal and a League Cup runners-up medal.

His reign as Wales manager was his first managerial post. Hughes was appointed in 1999 and remained in the role until 2004. He failed to qualify for a World Cup or European Championship during his five years in charge, although he came close to securing European Championship qualification in 2004.
