Many were surprised when he left Italy and Inter to join one of Premier League’s less famous teams, some didn’t hesitate to wonder out-loud ‘what was he thinking’, but seems like Xherdan Shaqiri not only is fine with having spent the last two seasons at Stoke City, but is considering staying there beyond this summer.
I have a contract with Stoke until 2020. If I were to leave Stoke, it would have to be a step up for me. Everything would have to be right
the Switzerland international told Blick, practically saying that he’s not desperate to leave the club, and will only do so if he feels that his next team would be bigger than Stoke City.
As for missing several games in the second half of the season not only because of his calf injury but also because of a fallout with his manager, Mark Hughes, Shaqiri was quick to deny the latter.
It is nonsense that there was a problem with Hughes. We never even had a discussion. And there is no truth in reports that my lifestyle was not healthy. Such accusations annoy me. It is utter nonsense. I am the opposite of someone who is not professional
the Swiss said.
