Arsene Wenger Impressed By Stoke City’s Transformation
It has been reported that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is impressed by Stoke City’s transformation.
Wenger takes his table-topping Arsenal to the Britannia Stadium on Sunday, with the Gunners having won only once in the league at Stoke in 34 years.
Asked if he was surprised at how Stoke have evolved, Wenger said: “Yes, I think they have gone a more technical and creative way.
“They have proved their creative potential and it’s a symbol of Premier League power because Ibrahim Afellay has played at Barcelona, Xhedran Shaqiri at Bayern Munich, Bojan at Barcelona, Marko Arnautovic at Werder Bremen.
“So they have players who have played at the top European clubs. They have not taken them because they were bad and today they play at Stoke so that shows you the financial power of the Premier League.”
