Stoke City Unveil New Manager

Share

The Scotsman will take charge of Stoke from tomorrow (January 16) and will be in the stands tonight when they travel to face Manchester United. The Chilean is a player whom Jose Mourinho described as "phenomenal" in his pre-match press conference.

The Potters have maintained their Premier League status since they were promoted in 2008. Mourinho's men sit second in the league with 47 points from 22 games. Scroll down to see the Manchester United and Stoke teams. But sometimes it can happen: on the table, there's a fantastic opportunity and you fight for that opportunity.

It is understood a Stoke delegation met Sanchez Flores in Barcelona on Wednesday and it had been reported that the 52-year-old Spaniard was offered a five-year contract.

But it was clear that's over now and we can not do anymore. "That was unlucky, it was an open game". If you don't miss a person then there would have been something wrong when you were together.

Stoke City come into this game with no manager. Last week's FA Cup defeat to Coventry was a new low point of the season and it's now three games on the bounce the Potters have tasted defeat. Antonio Valencia and Michael Carrick are also doubtful for this weekend as they continue to recover from injury. Eric Bailly remains sidelined but could return at a similar time. Bruno Martins Indi (groin) and former United Academy member Ryan Shawcross (calf) have been ruled out.

Coach Eddie Niedzwiecki has been in temporary charge since Hughes' departure, taking training ahead of Monday's league trip to Manchester United, and will pick the team at Old Trafford.

United are in action for the first time in 10 days. He has now scored just 5 in the last 21.

With Manchester United being linked to the capture of more players than most during the current transfer window, it's one signature in particular which could prove the most beneficial. Shaqiri, Diouf and Choupo Moting can all be game changers on their day but goals have been a real struggle for Stoke this season. That draw ended United's flawless start to the 2017-18 season. Considering they have been playing better of late and Stoke's problems both on and off the pitch, I think United shouldn't have problems to secure the three points at home.

The threat of relegation to Stoke is real.
