Sparky gets Brede vote.
AUGUST, 1. 2010 Hughes will be unveiled at Craven Cottage on Tuesday and the 29-year-old Norwegian is pleased the club have found a replacement for Roy Hodgson, who left for Liverpool earlier in the summer. Hangeland said: "He knows what we can do and we're looking forward to working with him from Monday.
"We're really happy to have a manager. I think we've got some good players and hopefully he can move us along in the right direction," he said.
"We've always been a team and hopefully we can still be under his guidance."
Hangeland has been linked with other clubs but insists he is not looking at a future away from Fulham, adding: "I've always been happy here and I've always said that."
Hughes watched yesterday's 1-0 pre-season friendly defeat at Portsmouth from the stands and Hangeland admitted afterwards: "I think he is probably not too impressed.
"We would like to have won but it matters more in a couple of weeks. Fitness is the most important thing - and preparing for when the Premier League starts."
The Cottagers begin their campaign with a match at Bolton on August 14.
