Xherdan Shaqiri is happy at Stoke but admits it would be naive for anyone to think he will remain in the Potteries for the remainder of his career.
Xherdan Shaqiri left Inter Milan for the top tier of English football in August of last year but says he is keen to play Champions League football again.
Shaqiri suffered a calf injury early in the season but, on his return, has played a starring role as Stoke moved up the table into ninth spot in the table
“At 25, it would be silly to say that I want to end my career at Stoke,” Shaqiri told the Daily Mirror. “At the moment I feel very comfortable. I have scored three goals as many as in the whole of last season.
“Stoke have a super coach, super team, ninth in the Premier League. But of course I want to play Champions League again in the near future.”
