Speaking a few days before losing his job as Stoke manager, Tony Pulis tells BBC Midlands Today's Laura May McMullan how proud he is to be in charge of the club.
Pulis left the club by mutual consent following talks with chairman Peter Coates on Tuesday.
"The thing I said when I first came to the football club was that I was very, very proud to be manager of Stoke City. I'm still very proud to be manager of Stoke City now," he said.
"For me it's a real honour. The Coates family are fantastic people, I've always enjoyed it here and hopefully it will continue."
