Peter Crouch Returns To The Premier League
At the grand age of 38, Peter Crouch has secured a return to the Premier League.
The striker who has a record of 108 goals in 462 games in the Premier League said he is still hungry and wants to achieve things.
“I still want to achieve things. I want to get more games in the Premier League and I would love to add to the 100 Premier League goals,” Crouch said.
“My game has probably changed a little bit. I’m not 25. But my attributes haven’t waned. I never really had blistering pace, so I haven’t lost that. I’ll be doing as well as I can this year, and who knows after that? I remember when Mark Hughes was manager [at Stoke]. I think he played until he was 40-odd and that was a target I had. I’d love to do that and hopefully I can do that in the Premier League with Burnley. .”
Burnley’s manager, Sean Dyche said he isn’t bothered by his age and have always liked his character and motivation.
“I’ve always admired that Crouchy knows what he is, and isn’t really bothered about other people’s opinions,” he said.
“I’m not really too bothered about his age. We know he’s a good character and he still has a desire. The main thing for me is having motivated people.”
