Hughes: It is a 'Wise' choice

Blackburn manager Mark Hughes as backed Ken Bates appointment of Dennis Wise saying his work ethic and personality is what the club needs.

'He has a fantastic work ethic, not only as a player but as a manager,' Hughes told Sky Sports News.

'He came to see our reserve game the other week and that is a round trip of about 400 miles. I think that shows how determined he is to be successful as a manager.

'He had decent success with Millwall where he took them to the FA Cup final, so the guy is a winner and I am sure he will be a success at Leeds United.'

'They are struggling at the moment and they need a strong personality to come in and shake the place up and certainly Dennis is that,' he added

thanks for that comment, he was never popular when ever he came to leeds as a player but I think he could be what we need someone who isn't afraid to get stuck into them.

If you have dead wood at Leeds he'll sort it out....tempted to say there goes your all your first team players but don't really know your side to be honest nowadays. Good luck anyway.
