He's in his third season at Stoke, and, judging by his recent interview, it could very well be his last.

Shaqiri, who's weighed in with seven league goals this season, has blasted his teammates, bemoaning their lack of quality, while recalling the stars he was playing alongside with at Bayern Munich then Inter.
