Soccer Betting: N’Zonzi wants Stoke to have a top-10 finish

Steven N’Zonzi is looking to a win on the last day to give Stoke a top-10 finish for the first time in the Premier League, and many soccer betting fans would really like to see this happen.
Soccer betting fans saw that after only one win from their first 13 games of the year, Stoke picked up seven points from a potential 12 to move only two points behind West Ham in 10th, and clear of the relegation zone.
N’Zonzi insisted that the club were completely concentrated on their season’s last game against Southampton, and were looking to finish in the top-half for the first time since returning to the top flight in 2009, and the team’s soccer betting fans would like to see them fully focused.
“It’s good that we are safe now, but we want to get into the top 10 for the first time,” he told the club’s official website. “It is the last game of the season and we want to go out in style..
“You always want to finish the season well, because it gives you a happy feeling when you go away for the summer break.
“It has been a long hard season, and we are ready for the break, but before that we want to go to Southampton, perform well and get the result that gives us a chance of finishing in the top 10, and earning the financial rewards that are on offer for the club.”
Fans that bet soccer saw that last season, the 24-year-old experienced the pain of relegation at Blackburn Rovers, and Tony Pulis, Stoke boss, took advantage of that to sign the French midfielder in August.
“It’s been a good first year for me,” N’Zonzi added. “Obviously there are ups and downs, and games when I have played better and games when I haven’t performed as well as I can.
And fans that bet soccer could see that it was not a bad year at all for the player, but know that he needs to improve his game.
“That’s football though, and I am learning here. It takes time when you move to a new club, but I feel I have fit in well here, and I am enjoying being a part of things at Stoke.
Do you have players? We can handle them for you.
“Hopefully I can be better next season, and hopefully as a club we can push on too. That is the ambitions of us all.”
Stoke’s soccer betting fans will see how the team continues to do, and many believe that they will indeed get their top-10 finish.
