“The side I played in was fantastic we had some amazing players, and I think they have gone backwards since then – it’s pretty obvious to say that,” the Stoke forward is quoted on talkSPORT.

“There’s been a couple of changes in management as well, so it’s not as settled there as it was when I was at the club.”
