Pulis reveals Potters masterplan

Tony Pulis has pledged to make Stoke City a top-ten Premier League side before bringing down the curtain on his managerial career.

The 52-year-old has been in charge of the Potters since 2006 and has helped transform the club from a mid-table Championship outfit to a top-flight club in his second spell at the Britannia Stadium.

Last season – their first in the Premier League – Stoke finished 12th in the table while they currently occupy 11th spot this term.

"If we keep this momentum going in the next couple of years, we will be a top-ten Premier League club," Pulis told The Sentinel.

"Then I'll go back to (his home in) Bournemouth a very happy man. But hopefully I won't be going back for a while yet, because my wife won't have me.

"We need three years to put the foundations down then we can be a top-ten side. That's my aim but there's a lot of hurdles to cross before then."

Pulis was previously in charge of the Potters for three seasons between 2002-05.
