Bryan Hughes refuses to be distracted by talk of Alan Curbishley and England.
Bryan Hughes insists Charlton's players are unfazed by talk of Alan Curbishley becoming the next coach of England.
Curbishley has already spoken to The Football Association in a widely reported 'secret' meeting and is thought to be one of the front-runners to replace Sven Goran Eriksson.
Whilst the speculation refuses to go away with regards to the Addicks chief, Hughes has claimed that any such talk has little affect on the players at The Valley.
Hughes remains determined to keep focused in the remainder of the current campaign and, at its close, what will be will be.
"I don't think it's had an affect on the players or the manager,'' Hughes told the club's official website.
"Alan's professional enough to know his position at Charlton. The club granted him permission to speak to The FA but I think numerous other managers are in with a shout of landing the big job but I don't think it's affected any of our players.
"If he gets the job he gets the job, if he doesn't, he doesn't.
"As far as we're concerned he's going to be here until at least the end of this season and we've still got a big job to do at this club until the end of the season and that's what we're striving to do.''
