Stoke City are looking to immediately bounce back from relegation after failing to escape the drop to the Championship last season.

The Potters have spent the last 10 seasons in the Premier League, and striker Saido Berahino is looking forward to turning a new leaf in order to fire them back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

The 24-year-old was in disappointing form last term, failing to score in 15 league appearances, making it a total of 30 appearances without a goal for Stoke since his arrival in January 2017.

Berahino was also reportedly embroiled in disciplinary issues, leading to a first-team ban from former manager Paul Lambert, but he has since put those disappointments in the past and has promised to get back to his best form next season.

Despite being a talented striker and a player with huge potential, the former England youth international has failed to get his act together in recent years, and his goal-scoring form has suffered as a result.

Should he manage to once again become the striker that grabbed 20 goals in 45 appearances for West Bromwich Albion in 2014-15, Berahino will definitely bag enough goals capable of boosting Stoke's promotion chances next season, and he will surely become an instant club hero in doing so.

Having had a stint in the Championship with Peterborough United in 2012, the Potters striker knows a thing or two about the football there and should not find it hard to come to grips with life in the second tier.

Relegation has presented Berahino with a second chance and, if he grabs it with both hands, he surely can fulfil his potential and write his name into Stoke folklore at the same time.
