Bojan Has Stoke Future

Stoke City manager Nathan Jones says Bojan Krkic has a future at the club but understands if the former Barcelona striker wants to leave, as the striker is "frustrated at his lack of game time". Jones said: "To suggest that I've told him he has no future at the club is ludicrous. Quite frankly the way this has been presented is wrong. As is normal at the end of every season, I have had honest and amicable conversations with several players, including Bojan, about the direction we want to move forward but, contrary to reports, none of them have been told that they don't have a future with us. Bojan has been a wonderful servant for Stoke City and he will be welcomed back with open arms next season if another opportunity doesn't arise for him."

 

EFL Attendances Reach 60-year High

Over 18m people attended the season's matches in England's Championship, League One and League Two, more than in any season since 1958/59. The highest of the season was Sunderland's Boxing Day clash with Bradford City was the biggest at 46,039, a new record in League One. The average gate is up to 11,113. This despite the increased TV coverage of matches and online streams giving people other options to watch the games.

 

Wolves Face Court Battle Over Logo

A man named Peter Davies is suing Wolverhampton Wanderers claiming he drew their wolf head logo while at school in the early 1960s.

Suarez To Have Knee Op

Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is set to miss out on the Copa del Rey final on 25th May as he will be having keyhole surgery on a medial meniscus injury in his right knee.
