Pardew insists that the knee Âinjury that Stoke boss Tony Pulis described as a â€śticking timebombâ€ť hasnâ€™t caused the summer capture from West Ham any major problems.
He explained: â€śWe donâ€™t do Âanything special.
â€śWe donâ€™t even give him a rest day. Heâ€™s not like Ledley King where he canâ€™t train for three or four days.
â€śThere is a deficiency in that knee that has been highlighted and we know about. We can manage it, it wonâ€™t be a problem.â€ť
