Hughes denies trying to wind up other bosses

Mark Hughes insists he is not deliberately trying to wind up managers at the top end of the Premier League. After snaring Gareth Barry from Aston Villa at the start of the transfer window and then going to Arsenal to recruit Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure, Hughes has annoyed David Moyes with his pursuit of Joleon Lescott.

But Hughes insists there is nothing personal in the way he targets players.

"It is just a consequence of the quality of the players we needed," he said.

"That quality plays at a certain level, in and around where we want to be.

"It is what happens when you want to get better."

After a successful midweek trip to Catalonia, where they beat Barcelona in a friendly, City return to Premier League combat tomorrow looking to build on last week's win at Blackburn by beating Wolves at Eastlands.

Carlos Tevez seems set for a first start after coming through an hour on Wednesday unscathed, while Slovakian youngster Vladimir Weiss caught the eye with an outstanding midfield display.

"Barcelona have great depth and great young talent but the most outstanding young player on the pitch was Vladimir Weiss," Hughes told City's official website.
