JOHN Hughes wants to see his Hartlepool United players start to bully people – both opponents and team-mates.
Hughes uses the example of Evan Horwood as evidence of a player’s need to not only bully direct opponents but also team-mates.
“I was shouting and bawling at Evan on Saturday (against Notts County) and I apologise for that,” he said, “But I was doing it because he won’t bully people to get anyone to come and give him a hand – he will try and cope by himself.
“You’ve got to get your team-mates in to give you a hand if you need it.
“You’ve got to be open and honest with each other and shout and bawl if you need to.”
