Bookies: Whelan wants to score more for Stoke
By Andrew Scott Sunday, 11 August 2013 11:01
Bookies learned that Glenn Whelan, Stoke City midfielder, is targeting more goals after new manager Mark Hughes gave him a more attacking role.
UK bookmaker services saw that the Republic of Ireland international who’s very famous with price per head sportsbooks did not feature on the Premier League’s score sheet since scoring in a 3-1 win in November 2011 over Blackburn Rovers.
Having played under Tony Pulis in a more defensive position, the 29-year-old is eager to have more of an attacking role this season. His fans can’t wait to see this happen, and bookies all over the world are eager to see how he’ll perform and believe that the player will be even better on the pitch this time around.
“A manager picks you to do a certain role and I went in there to do a job which I was asked to do,” Whelan told The Sentinel.
“If I can pitch in and score, which I would like to do and have done previously, then so be it.”
The former Sheffield Wednesday man and many bookies that follow the player and the club believe that the Stoke squad are responding well to a new style of play and adapting well to the management change.
“Obviously, things have changed with a new manager coming in with different ideas,” he continued.
And UK bookmaker services hope that the changes made will prove to be very beneficial for the squad, and many believe that the squad’s overall performance will make great improvements.
“As a player, you have to open yourself up to what he wants to get into his team.
“I think everyone knows what he wants by now. He’s trying to get us to get the ball down a lot more, not being as direct and playing through midfield a bit more.”
