Pulis confident over future

Tony Pulis has reiterated that he does not see himself leaving

Stoke City this summer, saying: “As far as I’m concerned, I’ll be

manager here next season.”

Doubts have been raised over Pulis’ future after a season which

has seen them flirt with the Premier League relegation battle.

But Pulis – who has been in charge at the Britannia Stadium for

six years – says he is confident that club owner Peter Coates won’t

be looking to replace him.

Pulis said: “As far as I am concerned, I will be manager here

next season.

“I spoke to Peter and once we have got the game over we will

meet up and he will take me out for dinner.

“I enjoy being a manager and I enjoy this club. I was proud to

be manager when I came here and I’m still proud now.”
