Hughton relishing Norwich challenge

Norwich manager Chris Hughton has said managing in the Premier League is a tough business but feels it is all worth it when his side produces a result like the 1-0 win against Manchester United on Saturday.

Hughton, who took over the reins at the Canaries in the summer, suffered a slow start to life with the club but his stock is starting to rise following victories against United and Arsenal.

"We know what we are getting ourselves into when we come into the management game, but there is a relentless pressure in this job and you don't have a minute to switch off," Hughton told ESPN.

"If you work in this game, you want to be involved in the Premier League, to pit your wits against Manchester United and Chelsea, to try and defy the odds and get something from games like we did against Arsenal a few weeks back and yet the challenge at this level is even more demanding.

"The pressure and stress you put yourself through is probably not good for you. Can I switch off when I go home at night? Not really because there is always something to do, always a phone call to take, always a problem that crops up.

"The January transfer window is just around the corner now and already the agents are ringing me trying to sell me this player and that player. Whether Norwich can afford to bring in the guys we are being offered is a different matter.

"You can be out with the family having dinner and something will happen that needs your attention and that is part of the job. It is a 24 hours a day occupation and you have to accept that or you can not enjoy your work."

While the former Newcastle boss paints a tough picture of life as manager of a struggling Premier League side, he believes victory, when it comes a long, is all the more sweeter for it.

"Despite what I say, I am enjoying my time here," he said. "We have an honest group of players here who are doing their best to get results in an environment that is very difficult for us to succeed in, but the satisfaction you get when you succeed at a club of this stature is even more thrilling than it would be if I was at one of the top clubs in England."

Hughton will hope to continue Norwich's rise up the Premier League table when he takes his side to Goodison Park to face Everton next Saturday.
