Stoke found a coach just before the Manchester United clash

The new manager of Stoke City is Paul Lambert. This news was reported on Monday by the potters’ leadership. The 48-year-old Scot replaces Mark Hughes, who was fired less than two weeks ago.

For the last time Lambert worked in Wolverhampton team, which was released last summer. Previously, Borussia Dortmund’s former soccer player and Celtic led the Blackburn, Aston Villa and Norwich teams.

Stoke City is on Manchester United tonight, and Lambert will watch the match from the stands. The Scotsman will be on the bench for the first time at the end of this week when the team receives Huddersfield. Stoke is in the relegation zone, but it’s just a 17th Southampton point just above the line.
