Potters veteran talks unique feat

By | 20th October 2011

Stoke City have enjoyed a promising start to the season and it is clear that despite the increasing number of matches they have been playing due to Europa League involvement, Tony Pulis’ men can cope with the challenging demands.

One of the reasons why the Potters have been so impressive is a strong defense, anchored in the Premier League by Bosnian goalkeeper Asmir Begovic, who has been able to focus exclusively on the domestic front due to the presence of veteran Thomas Sorensen in the squad.

Sorensen has become somewhat of a cup specialist at the Britannia Stadium and although it is a unique role to be playing in, the Dane has a very positive view of his situation at the club.

“The weird thing is that it feels like I am playing every week at the moment because we are having so many games. I’m more or less playing as many games as Asmir , so in that respect, it is great,” Sorensen told Potters Matchday Magazine.

He added: “It is important to have something to look forward to week in, week out, so I am happy that the manager has the faith to play me in all the cup games. Indeed, I don’t think it is realistic that one ‘keeper could have played in all of the games we have had so far and it’s a good time to be in that role.

“The past few months have been fantastic, but I know we can’t count on that every year. To get to the FA Cup Final was incredible and now to be playing in the Europa League most weeks and in the last sixteen of the Carling Cup is very special too.”

The Potters have been terrific in the Europa League thus far and their impressive form has continued today with a dominant 3-0 half-time lead over Maccabi Tel-Aviv at the Britannia.
