He spent his first two seasons at Stoke City being Asmir Begovic’s number two. Once the Bosnian left for Chelsea, Mark Hughes trusted him, and he was proven right.
Jack Butland is considered by many as the best English goalkeeper these days, and even though he seems committed to Stoke City, he doesn’t hide his ambition to play at a higher level ‘when the time is right’.
My ambitions are to be the Stoke number one and England number one, but there are other things I want to achieve in my career as well
the England international told talkSPORT.
I want to play in the Champions League and I want to win trophies. There’s no reason why we can’t win trophies at Stoke, we’ll try and win some cups and do as well as we can, but I obviously have ambitions
the 24-year-old said. Where could his ambitions lead him, is there a specific club he has in mind?
A club like Manchester United, or whoever it may be… United are, for me, the biggest club in the world and you have to take those things in consideration
Butland said, before repeating that
I’m back in a Stoke kit at the minute and I’m focused on doing as well as I can in pre-season and the season ahead, and what will be, will be.
