GARY ROWETT was confirmed as the NEW Stoke City manager on Tuesday evening.
The former Derby County, Birmingham City and Burton Albion boss put pen-to-paper on a three-year deal. In his interview with the Stoke City he said –
“This has come around quite quickly, but I am absolutely delighted to make the move to such an ambitious football club,”.
“This is a Club that has had amazing stability over the years, has been established in the Premier League for some time and the challenge for me now is, of course, to get Stoke City back into that division as soon as possible.
“My ambition has always been to one day manage in the Premier League, and having been in the Championship for three years now I feel this is a great opportunity for me to do that.”
“We have to make sure that the guys who report back for the first day of pre-season first and foremost want to be at Stoke City, and that they are willing to put in the desire and effort, that not only I want, but what Stoke City and the supporters of this Club want as well.”
