Javier Hernandez has pledged his future to the club, claiming he wants to stick around for a long time a lift a lot of trophies.

“We were very happy with the result,” said Hernandez. “We know about Stoke’s style and are delighted. I’m working a lot because I want to stay here a long time and win a lot of tournaments.”

His goal was scored in an unusual style, particularly considering his height, as he headed the ball using the back of his head.

“I jumped and saw the ball behind me and tried to head it towards the goal,” he added. “I don’t remember doing it in training. It’s a good goal but the most important thing is the result. Here there are no heroes, it is about the team. My team-mates trust in me and all the staff too. It’s an unbelievable opportunity for me to play with the biggest team in the world.”
