Manchester City Manager Remains Hopeful in Spite of Striker Shortage

Manchester City Manger, Mark Hughes doesn’t seem to be bothered by the potential shortage of strikers as the team prepares to enter the Premier League opener against Aston Villa on August 17th. Most notably, Benjani Mwaruwari’s injuries, Jo’s decision to join Brazil in Beijing and significant trades have left City with a notable absence of the strikers necessary for a strong team.

The 2008 Beijing Olympics and a set of injuries may have left Manchester short on the strikers they’ll need to get off to a good start at the Premier League but Hughes has been maintaining confidence. Although external forces may have removed some key players the manager is determined to make up the losses and provide a good showing as the games kick off. The youthful, ambitious team line-up and the promise of solid, new blood on the field may end up being enough to counter the lack of strikers currently listed on the Manchester City roster.

A meeting between Manager, Hughes and Executive Chairman, Garry Cook took place on the weekend and the acquisition of quality strikers is surely at the top of the list. Lens’ Aruna Dindane has been in high demand among European clubs and Hughes has expressed interest in bidding the player onto City as well which could mean good things for the team.
