Walking away is not my style insists Stoke City manager Tony Pulis
The Potters boss has come under pressure recently
Friday 26 April 2013
Tony Pulis is adamant he will not be leaving Stoke, but has been offered no assurances over his future beyond this season. Speculation has surfaced that Pulis would quit City once the 40-point target is reached, potentially as early as Saturday should they beat Norwich at home. But after meeting owner Peter Coates on Tuesday, Pulis insisted no word was uttered of an early exit.
"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. "If I was going to walk away then I would have told him by now.
"This football club has been absolutely fantastic to me. People who know me know I'm not somebody who just walks off into the sunset."
But the manager added: "Everything is instant. Everybody wants results, and if you don't get them I understand. I'm experienced to know if you don't get results in this job then there is pressure on you, and you have to deal that pressure."
