Mark Hughes says that he expects star striker Bojan Krkic to return to first-team action by the start of next season.

The Stoke City forward was extremely unlikely to get a cruciate ligament injury at a time when he was just starting to find his feet at the club. The former Barcelona man was widely expected to struggle when it was announced that he was going to play for Stoke City – a team known for its physical style of football.

Stoke City end on a High

"We couldn't have asked for a better finish to a really great season. The level of performance in that first 45 minutes was exceptional and I don't think it reflects badly on Liverpool. I think most teams would have struggled to cope with the quality and intensity of our play.’’

This was the statement that was released by Mark Hughes as he praised the work and performance that his players displayed during the last match of the season of Stoke City as they locked horns with Liverpool and came out as the victorious side with a resounding 6-1 triumph.
