Mark Hughes speaks about Manchester City third-round exit
Manager of Manchester City Mark Hughes describes his team's FA Cup third-round exit against Nottingham Forest as 'indefensible'.
Nottingham Forest got three goals from Nathan Tyson, Robert Earnshaw and Joe Garner.
Hughes said: "I wouldn't defend it, because it's indefensible. We are disappointed with the performance."
In insisting he was the right man for the City job, Hughes added: "I know exactly what is needed here."
Forest, hovering one place above the Championship relegation zone on goal difference, sacked manager Colin Calderwood on Boxing Day after defeat to Doncaster.
Hughes will no doubt feel some pressure now to perform better after such a display on the pitch today.
