Shaqiri wants to win trophies
Stoke City winger XherdanShaqiri has stated that he wants to win the Premier League as well as the Champions League while playing for Stoke City.
He believes that the club can do it if they invest in the club and that they already have the necessary foundation for success.
He was speaking after the club announced the signing of Darren Fletcher. The club made an interesting start to the season but their form dwindled during the campaign, and they ultimately finish 13th in the table.
XherdanShaqiri said that this time the club should be aiming for higher. He said that he will be doing his best to help the club finish higher in the table this season but that the club should also continue in purchasing quality players.
When asked whether Stoke City can replicate what Leicester City has done, he said that he is convinced that the club could achieve the same feat. He believes that there are some great players within the team and that they have the necessary experience to challenge for titles.
XherdanShaqiri said that he would love to get back in the Champions League after having won it with Bayern Munich. Indeed the player was on the bench for the 2013 final and said that he wants to experience the same thing again with Stoke City.
He believes that the club needs to become more consistent and also make a good start to the campaign. He said that there had been some ups and downs last season, but this time they need to make sure that they are more consistent.
He believes that Stoke City can challenge the big four and earn a place in the Champions League next season. The players need to believe in themselves and give their best in each and every game.
