Marko Arnautovic is in line to become the 17th Stoke player to reach 100 Premier League appearances for the club this weekend.
There was a point during the summer when it appeared that the Austrian wouldn’t reach the milestone, but he eventually put pen to paper to prolong his career in Staffordshire.
Whilst results on the pitch might not be the greatest at the moment, football agent Sky Andrew believes Stoke will pull through a tricky patch.
The man who has dealt with some of the country’s biggest stars sees Stoke as one of most professionally run sides in the Premier League.
It was a mixed weekend for Stoke’s former players.
We welcomed Ben Foster back to Staffordshire on Saturday, with the keeper playing 90 minutes for West Brom in the 1-1 draw at the bet365 Stadium.
It was a much improved performance from Stoke City, but the side are still searching for a first league win of the season after conceding a last gasp equaliser.
The Potters had taken the lead with less than 20 minutes remaining through Joe Allen, but Salomon Rondon’s late header meant the points were shared.
“Bloody hell, he’s good.” Those were the words of agent Sky Andrew when he first saw Julien Ngoy as a 14-year-old.
And Andrew knows all about talent having represented the likes of Jermain Defoe, David Ginola and, most notably, Sol Campbell since hanging up his table tennis bat in the early 1990s.
