Oussama Assaidi: Is unsure where his future lies

The Morocco international joined the Potters in August for the remainder of the season and has impressed at the Britannia Stadium - netting his fourth goal of the campaign in the 1-1 draw with Everton on New Year's Day.

"I don't know what is going to happen with me," Assaidi said when asked about his plans for the future. "Sometimes (Liverpool manager) Brendan Rodgers texts me, but I don't know.

"I am very happy here, because (Stoke manager) Mark Hughes has made me better, giving me a lot of confidence and letting me do my job the way I want to.

"Everyone at the club seems to like me. We will see at the end of the year what happens.

"He (Rodgers) texts me sometimes if I score, saying 'well done', 'keep going' and 'I am hearing good things about you'. But I love to play here for Stoke because they have given me a chance."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
