Etebo To Work Under New Manager At Stoke City After Jones Sacking

Super Eagles midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo will work under a new manager at Stoke City after the club sackes Nathan Jones on Friday due to a disastrous start to the 2019/20 campaign.

The struggling Potters have lost 10 of their 14 matches and sit 23rd in the Championship table after just two wins all season.

Former Luton boss Jones won only six of his 38 games in charge, having succeeded Gary Rowett in January.

“Stoke City have today parted company with manager Nathan Jones with immediate effect,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.

“Assistant manager Paul Hart and first team coach Joaquin Gomez have also left the bet365 Stadium.

“The Club would like to thank Nathan and his staff for their efforts over the past nine months.

“A new managerial appointment will be made as swiftly as possible but in the meantime Rory Delap, Kevin Russell and Andy Quy will take charge of first-team affairs.”

Jones thanked the owners of the club for the opportunity to manage the club and the support throughout his time with the Potters.

He said: “I would like to thank John and Peter Coates, firstly for the opportunity to manage this Football Club and then for the continued support and patience throughout my time here. I would also like to thank the supporters for their fantastic support. Finally, I wish the Club the very best for the future.”

  • I saw this coming: Nathan Jones’ appointment was always a gamble which ultimately did not pay off.

    Perhaps they should go back to Tony Pulis. If they do go back to him, it will be interesting to see how that will affect Etebo’s position in the field of play.

    Funny enough, the diamond 4-4-2 that Jones deployed on occasions actually brought out the best in Etebo.

    It made him more mobile and increased his goal-threat potentials.

    Now that the inevitable has happened, interesting times await Etebo and his Stoke team mates.

    As for returning back to the English Premer League (which would have been a magnet that drew Etebo to the club in the first place), that dream, ambition, aspiration and hope will have to wait for another season.

    If Etebo so desperately want to play in the English Premer League next season, he has to pray to be snapped up by a mid table side.

    But for a player currently averaging 6.7/10for his performances thus far this season, across sites that monitor and collate stats, Etebo realistically needs to do more to attract interest from any credible Premier League side.

    That said, the Olympics 2016 Bronze medal-winning midfielder remains a very solid and dependable player with the capacity for continuous development.

      Nathan Jones style is totally similar to Emery at Arsenal( if i could use that comparison); the attack approach. But the problem is they lack in the defensive side of the game. If you are going to go all out attacking, you have to be sure you have a good defence. There is no point scoring goals while you keep on leaking goals. It is self destructive. And that cost him is job.

      Although Tony Pulis would be a good fit for Stoke city due to their position right, they need to survive. But I don’t think his style would be a blessing to the attacking instinct of Etebo. Tony Pulis is all about rigidity and cares more about been defensive rather than attack. It could help Etebo defensive side but would end sacrificng his attack side of his game.

      For now, the only real chance Etebo has in getting into the Premiership is through his display for the Super Eagles. Because it stands with Stoke position, if he is going to be snap up , it would another Championship team( just like Semi Ajayi). If not, he might totally leave England for another league,maybe Spain, Italy etc.

      Wish Him well though..
