Xherdan Shaqiri can’t wait to make his debut with his new shirt of Stoke City. The day after the official announcement of his move from Inter to the Potters, the Swiss reveals on the club’s official website that the landing in England has always been a dream of his: “I am happy to be here, I can’t wait to get to know my new teammates, go out and do what I love, that is to play football. The Premier has always been a dream of mine, I’m sure I have made the right decision to come here. It has been a couple of long days because I wanted to wait for the deal to become official, but in the end I’m here and I’m happy. I watched the game against Liverpool, we lost but I saw some encouraging things. I am sure we can win a lot of games and maybe improve the position from last year, there is nice potential here.”

The former Inter player also has praise for his new coach: “Mark Hughes was very important for my choice, we have spoken many times. I think it was the perfect decision to come here to work with this great coach. Now I want to show my football and help the club to grow. I need to play a lot, Stoke is perfect.”
