On Friday, a Stoke City fan account on Twitter asked the club’s supporters which former player they would love to see back at the Bet365 Stadium.
It was certainly an interesting question when considering the talent that Stoke have attracted in the past.
There were a number of different responses, but one name kept cropping up, with Steven N’Zonzi selected on several occasions.
Pl>ymaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…
N’Zonzi currently turns out for Italian giants Roma, having made the move to Serie A from Sevilla in last summer’s transfer window.
The 30-year-old, who helped France win the 2018 World Cup, joined Stoke from Blackburn Rovers in 2012.
N’Zonzi made 120 appearances for Stoke, scoring seven times and contributing four assists in the process, according to Transfermarkt.
He has developed into a very, very good midfielder and was actually linked with Barcelona before joining Roma ahead of the 2018/19 campaign.
Stoke are now a Championship club and it would take a miracle for the Potters to be able to entice N’Zonzi back at this stage of his career.
However, it has not stopped the club’s supporters from thinking about it and indeed wishing that it would happen.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Stoke fans can be seen below:
