Stoke City CEO: Ramadan’s success opens door for other young signings
Scholes has been impressed with what new signing Ramadan Sobhi has had to offer until now in the English Premier League.
The Egyptian has joined Stoke City this season and has since impressed after starting several matches for the team due to the absence of injured winger Xherdan Shaqiri.
“It’s early days, but we have been really pleased with how well he’s settled in and taken to the group, to training and being part of the club,” Scholes said.
“Touch wood, so far Ramadan is doing very well. That can only help in attracting players, be they young players from overseas.
“It can only help in giving the club a profile in certain markets, but I think it also helps with our own young players.”
Scholes then proceeds to talk about how Sobhi managed to adapt really well while they provided the right atmosphere for him to do so.
“What is clear is that we have to give them all the time to assimilate and recognise all the differences like culture and diet.
“We have to then put in place elements to help the player, the key word being help, because we also have to assess when we are recruiting them that they have the desire and the temperament to assimilate as well. Which he (Ramadan) seems to have.”
It’s worth noting that the Potters are set to travel away to Premier League champions Leicester City this weekend with Ramadan Sobhi expected to keep his place on the wing after starting in their last game against league leaders Chelsea.
