Stoke City assistant manager Mark Bowen hints that Ramadan will get more play time
With Stoke City‘s managerial staff making tactical changes to the team’s squad, assistant manager Mark Bowen has praised Ramadan Sobhi for his patience and confirmed that the player will be getting more minutes on the field.
Ahead of Stoke City’s match with Swansea City at the Britannia Stadium, assistant manager Mark Bowen spoke to Radio Stoke about the changes made to the squad.
Senegalese striker Mame Diouf has made his return to the squad with Geoff Cameron excluded for a knee injury. Côte d’Ivoire international Wilfried Bony is expected to make a start, according to Bowen.
Bowen also believes that the players are ready and have the momentum to climb up the English Premier League table, but pointed out that Swansea City is a strong side that he believes will escape the relegation zone: “We can jump up four or five places … but it won’t be easy. They’re a hard side to play against and I don’t expect to see them down there at the back end of the season.”
Finally, Mark Bowen praised Ramadan Sobhi’s patience to get more playing time with Stoke City in the English Premier League, and claimed that the 19-year-old will be included in the squad more often.
“Ramadan has done very well. He’s been patient, waiting for his chance. He’s got a real bright future and this is the right time to bring him into the squad, and hopefully on the pitch as well,” he said.
Stoke City currently stand in 17th place with nine points from nine matches played, and are just two points above Ahmed Elmohamady’s Hull City, which is in the relegation zone.
