'sparky' is all ready to prove a glass act; IN ASSOCIATION WITH.

STOKE boss Mark Hughes is pleased to see another British manager back in the Premier League - to help maintain the postmatch drinks tradition. 'Sparky' (above) believes the sporting concept of sharing a glass of wine with the opposition is not understood by foreign bosses. And he is looking forward to the company of new Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood whatever the outcome of today's trip to Villa Park.

He said: "There's a solidarity between British managers. We're probably the only ones that go into rooms after games.

"It's a little bit of a new thing for foreign managers, it's not something they do.

"Win, lose or draw you always go and congratulate your hosts or commiserate with them hopefully!

"We'll go in. We've always gone in at Villa and had a good welcome."
