Praise for Afellay as former Barcelona man delivers best Stoke performance

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes was full of praise for Ibrahim Afellay and labeled his performance in the Capital One Cup win over Sheffield Wednesday as his best in a Potters shirt.


The Dutch winger opened the scoring by netting the first goal of his Stoke career in the 30th minute of the 2-0 quarter-final win at the Britannia Stadium.

After the game, Hughes said: "I thought he was outstanding tonight, and in my opinion produced his best display of the season for us.

"He is clearly a really talented individual and you could see that given his performance, and the way that he took his goal this evening."
