Xherdan Shaqiri claims that even Ronaldinho could do little on a cold wet night at Stoke
Stoke City midfielder is disappointed with his teammates as the club is very likely to get relegated at the end of the season
Shaqiri is frustrated with the quality of his partners and suggests that even Barcelona legend Ronaldinho wouldn't bring joy to Stoke's fans:
"There is a feeling that even Ronaldinho could do little in this team and that's a sobering thought. I have realised that it is a bit different when you have players like Ribery and Thiago at Bayern or Icardi and Kovacic at Inter."
Stoke City earned a special place in Barcelona fans' folklore, after the famous words by British TV reporter Andy Gray, who suggested that Leo Messi would struggle on a cold, wet Wednesday night at Stoke.
The phrase has then become a widely used expression to describe a difficult game against an underdog in tough weather conditions.
