Stoke City boss Tony Pulis insists he's not one dimensional.
Pulis, 55, insists he is no one-trick pony on his way to the knackersâ€™ yard and claims the changes he wants to make cannot be pushed through overnight.
He said: â€œA lot people have an opinion about my style and, yes, I do like to move the ball quickly.
â€œMy preference is to play with width and have people down the sides with pace. I want us to get the ball out to players who can excite the crowd.
â€œI want to encourage wingers to run down the pitch and get crosses in and I like to see centre-forwards in the box putting those chances away.
â€œBut itâ€™s about who you can afford to bring in.
â€œIf I had an open chequebook and someone said you can have Cristiano Ronaldo AND Gareth Bale, people of that ilk, fine â€” they would suit my style brilliantly. But weâ€™re Stoke City and we work within a budget we can afford.
â€œYou donâ€™t just wake up one morning and say â€˜Weâ€™re changing our entire style of playing today. It takes time for a club to evolve â€” three, four, maybe even five years in some cases.
â€œYou canâ€™t just sign two players and say weâ€™re a different side now.
â€œItâ€™s like turning the QE2 â€” it has to be done gradually."
