Potters popularity on the rise
Salif Diao believes that Stoke are now more popular than Manchester United in his home land of Senegal. The Potters are known for having several African players at the club including 4 Senegalese players.
Talking to the Sentinel Diao said "I think Stoke City are the most popular team in Senegal". "Football is massive in Africa and they have always been proud of their football stars".
He went on to say 'When we have a good game for Stoke, or Stoke do well, the people in Senegal feel they are part of something.'
Its not everyday that you see a small premier league club such as Stoke become more liked then Man United is it?
But when you think about we have had at least half the national team over the last few seasons.
