Pulis planning long Stoke stay

23 October 2012 10:01

Tony Pulis has revealed he would be happy to end his managerial career at Stoke City, where his relationship with the board is 'first class'.

Pulis, who is in his second spell in charge of Stoke, has established the Potters in the Premier League after leading them to promotion five years ago and he has also guided the team into Europe.

The Welshman insists he enjoys his job at the Britannia Stadium and that he wants to continue his development of the club with the help of chairman Peter Coates.

"I'm hoping to be here for a few more years, and I hope Peter [Coates - Stoke chairman] and the family are here for a few more years, and we've got to gradually move it on," Pulis said.

"That will suit some people, but won't suit others because they want immediate success and they always want their team to win.

"But hopefully we know which way we are going. It takes time, and it's the way to do it we think.

"I don't see myself anywhere else. I've got fantastic respect for the area. I enjoy the football club, and my relationship with the Coates family is first class."
