Pulis plays down Stoke exit talk

25 April 2013 17:42

Tony Pulis has reaffirmed his commitment to Stoke City, despite speculation suggesting his departure is imminent.

Reports indicated that Pulis had decided to leave the

Britannia Stadium outfit as soon as their Premier League status is secured.

However, the 55-year-old refuted any notion of his desire to quit the club,

stressing that the issue had not been raised during recent discussions with

chairman Peter Coates.

"We

sat there for three or four hours chatting away about everything, and he never

mentioned anything about whether I was leaving or not," said Pulis.

"This football club

has been absolutely fantastic to me. The Coates family are wonderful, wonderful

people to work for. My respect for them goes a lot further than just closing a

door and walking away.

"People

who know me know I'm not somebody who just walks off into the sunset."

Still, Pulis,

whose second stint at the club began back in 2006, could not go as far as to

guarantee his future at the club beyond this campaign, and was eager to focus

on the task of guiding Stoke to the all-important 40-point mark.

He added: "Let's

get to 40 points and then we can start talking about everything else.

"I hope

and want to be here, but it's everybody else, and the two most important

factors in this are the family and myself. I've not said anything and the

family haven't said anything."
