The Argentine's mutiny against manager Roberto Mancini in their Champions League game against Bayern Munich has given the club much heartache, and speaking to talkSPORT, Hughes believes that the club's hierarchy need to move on quickly.
Carlos Tevez's advisor, Kia Joorabchian has insisted the striker did not refuse to play for Manchester City - and claimed that post-match comments by the player suggesting he had done so were mistranslated by a club interpreter.
The Welshman, who was the manager who snapped up the striker from Manchester United to Eastlands, believes that some clarity is needed.
Hughes said: "Everybody needs a little bit of clarity on what actually did happen, and no one really knows apart from the people that were involved.
"It's important that there are two sides to every story and if there has been some confusion or misinterpretation about the messages that were given, either by the manager or by the player, then that needs to be cleared up for the benefit of Manchester City, the player and his manager", he concluded.
The Argentine is currently on a two week suspension from City and has returned home to Argentina while awaiting to find out his fate.
