Fuller admits to uncertain Stoke future

Stoke City striker Ricardo Fuller admits he could be on borrowed time with the Potters following his bust-up with captain Andy Griffin. Fuller was sent off for slapping his skipper during Sunday's 2-1 away defeat by West Ham, sparking speculation the Jamaica international could be sold in January.

"Who knows?" Fuller told Sky Sports News when asked if he had a future at Stoke.

"It is up to the club. I give my all for Stoke, maybe I give too much and that is maybe why I am in this position.

"I always try to do so much for Stoke City. I am a Stoke City player and that is all I care about.

"It is up to them. Anything that goes, goes. I am okay. I love to do football work for Stoke City. It is up to the club."

Meanwhile, Fuller has revealed that he was provoked by Griffin during the incident, which occurred immediately after West Ham has equalised Abdoulaye Faye's opener.

"I said to him, 'Griff, clear the ball out' and he was very rude and disrespectful," added Fuller when asked why the confrontation occurred.

"What he said was bad but what I did was worse."

But Fuller is adamant that there will be no long-standing grudge with Griffin and insists the incident is now in the past.

"That is how it goes in football. You want to do so well that these things happen," he added.

"I am sorry for the fans, especially, and for costing the team three points.

"These things happen and hopefully it doesn't happen again.

"It is all done and dusted. I am looking forward to the New Year and hopefully it will be a better one."
