Today, fomer Inter player Xherdan Shaqiri was presented as a Stoke City player at a press conference in which he explained the reasons that led him to this new experience in England.

PREMIER LEAGUE – “For me it was always a dream to play here. Now I finally arrived, I can’t wait to get started and do what I love the most, that is to play. My first impressions? It was very nice to be at the stadium on Sunday. Unfortunately the result was negative, but I saw many good things. I chose to come because the club has shown that they wanted me strongly, this to me is very important. In addition I think we have a very strong team, the coach wants a team that plays good football and always wants to win, just like me. I can’t wait to start, now I feel fit and I will be available when I am needed.”

DIFFERENCES – “I’ve watched a lot of games, I know that Italian football and English are very different. Here, you play a lot on offense and all the teams are very offensive, so I think this championship is the best for me. I think the Premier League is the most beautiful in the world. There are no poor teams, you never know what kind of results there will be, therefore we must work every day to do our best. I am ready, with my last club I trained very well. ”

GOALS – “Everybody wants to play in the Champions League or the Europa League, but for the moment it is not right too look too far ahead and focus on one match at a time.”
