With Stoke City heading to Germany for the KiK-xxl Cup pre-season tournament this weekend but suffering a double loss to SV Meppen and Hamburger SC at the Hansch Arena, one man appeared to stick out for fans as they did their best to try and follow the action with no live streams being offered by the club.
Upping the hard work during a great week of training in Germany! Let's go for more!

27-year-old Bojan was that man as he took to the pitch for the entirety of both matches on Saturday.
The Dutchman found the net against Hamburger SV, see it for yourself!

Having spent all of last season out on loan with Alaves following his switch in late August, plenty of fans are hoping he’ll get his opportunity once again under new manager Gary Rowett and with his perceived performances in the KiK-xxl Cup he’s certainly done his chances no harm in the eyes of fans – he even helped himself to an assist in the second match against Hamburger SV as he set up Erik Pieters for his goal.
Bojan, loved by all Stokies
