Record-Breaking Excites Odemwingie


Stoke striker, Peter Odemwingie, says he is delighted to have played a part in a record-breaking campaign for the club. The Potters broke the 50-point barrier for the first time since winning promotion to the Premier League in 2008 after playing out a goalless draw with Burnley on Saturday.

Mark Hughes has guided Stoke to back-to-back ninth-place finishes in the top flight and Odemwingie insists it is a good time to be associated with the club.

Odemwingie hopes that they can carry the momentum through into next season and create a legacy that the fans will always remember. Odemwingie said: “The most important thing is always the group. And I’m very happy I could make it back and that the gaffer welcomed me back. “Two seasons with back-to-back top-10 finishes is fantastic.

The players have achieved what nobody has achieved and those are the things you want to hear. “It’s great that I’m able to make a minor contribution to a time which we as players will never forget, when we are helping to lay foundations for the club. “This is a memorable time for the team.

They are not just getting results, but also pleasing supporters with top-class football that gets them excited. “Hopefully one day, when Stoke City go to Europe and win cups, they will not forget us.”
