Speaking to Sky Sports, Hughes said, “The Premier League is like no other league in world football.

“If you have had no experience of [the Premier League], either as a player or a manager, then I think it can take you aback and you can have a period of transition where you’re not quite sure what’s hit you, because it is such a different level in my view.

“So you see the attraction of [Mauricio] Pochettino coming in because he does know the Premier League and the strength of it, but there are examples of other coaches from other countries who have come in and hit the ground running.”

He added: “The fact is Manchester United is one of the top jobs in world football, so there will be plenty of people throwing their CVs in and hoping they’re going to get a call. I have not had mine yet, but there you go!”
