Pulis wants to end career at Stoke

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has for the first time revealed his desire to see out his managerial career at the club and build on his already formidable relationship with chairman Peter Coates.

• Blog: Positive Potters

Pulis recently celebrated the sixth anniversary of his second managerial spell at the Potters and the transformation in the club's fortunes during that time has been hugely impressive.

Having established Stoke as regulars in the Premier League, the former Plymouth boss wants the opportunity, in tandem with his supportive chairman, to oversee further improvements before eventually retiring from the game.

"I don't see myself going anywhere else. I've got fantastic respect for the place and the area. It's a tough area," Pulis said. "They say what they think, but they are hard-working, honest people and I enjoy the football club.

"I'm hoping to be here for a few more years and hoping the Coates family will be, so we have to move it up gradually."

Pulis' first spell at Stoke started almost a decade ago, in November 2002, but he has flourished since returning to the club while under the ownership of Coates, who remains as committed as ever to continued development.

Coates has been generous with transfer spending over the years, but the manager knows future development will have to take place at a more gradual pace, with the new Financial Fair Play regulations being introduced.

"We are trying to evolve and we have got better players, but you have to get a balance and there's no rush," Pulis said. "That will suit some people but not others because they want immediate success. But it takes time and it's the way to do it, we think.

"There's no problem with Peter. I just hope he lives for another 40 or 50 years.

"We know we are trying to evolve for the team to play through the pitch quickly. I will never change my views on that. We want smaller, quicker passes, but always through the pitch, not backwards or square."
