Nathan Jones picked up his first win as Stoke City boss on Saturday, seeing off league leaders Leeds United 2-1 at the Bet365 Stadium.
Goals from Sam Clucas and Joe Allen proved the difference as the Potters look to make a late push for a play-off place.
But some news broke on Saturday morning that may bring a few fans down from the high of yesterday’s victory and that is that the club are apparently willing to let fan favourite Bojan leave after he received a lucrative offer from MLS side New England Revolution.
The 28-year-old made the move to Stoke from Barcelona in the summer of 2014, going on to make 77 appearances for the club, scoring 16 goals, 14 of which came in the Premier League.
He has often struggled for fitness in recent years, however, making just 13 appearances this season for the Potters.
But is this the right decision from the Potters?
I think it’s probably best for both parties to be honest.
He’s clearly a very talented player but it just hasn’t worked out for him at Stoke, and it’s a strange one because he’d probably be better off in the Premier League.
If they can get some money for him, then it’s a good move all round.
It’s a real shame but you have to say it’s the right decision.
There is no doubt that if he could find some consistent fitness, Bojan would be one of the Championship’s best players.
But it is just not worth keeping him on the bill out of hope and hope alone.
I can’t see any reason why this isn’t a good decision really.
Despite his talents, he’s never done it in England and I’ve always thought him and Stoke were a match made in hell in all honesty.
Bojan needs to play, and Stoke need to move players on who aren’t contributing. Good move all around for me.Like what the FLW have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
