Stoke star backing club to reach Champions League

Stoke City star Bojan has backed the club to reach Champions League level within the next five years, according to the Daily Mail.

The Potters were previously a relatively unfashionable Premier League outfit, playing a physical and direct style of football under Tony Pulis, as they established themselves in the top tier.

However, since the arrival of Mark Hughes at the helm, the Britannia Ground outfit have transcended into more of a free flowing, attacking team.

One of the key signs of the transition is perhaps the fact Hughes boasts FIVE Champions League winners in their squad, the most of any team in the league.

Bojan’s former Barcelona teammates Ibrahim Afellay and Marc Muniesa add to the likes of Marko Arnautovic and Xherdan Shaqiri as those who have lifted the top continental prize, who now play in red and white.

Now, the 25-year old Spaniard has revealed those within the club believe they can reach such a level as their footballing project continues.

‘Stoke City wants to improve’, stated the former Ajax and Roma playmaker.

‘We did last two years, top ten, but we don’t have to be satisfied with that. Each season we want more.’

‘Imagine if we play Champions League football in the next five years. It can happen.’
