Stoke City’s Peter Crouch has made history as he scored his 100th Premier League goal on January 14th after his team faced off with Sunderland in a match that resulted with Stoke City winning the match 3-1.
Peter Crouch is the 26th player that has ever managed to do accomplish this milestone and for a performer that is 35 years old, it’s surprising as well as impressive for somebody with that age range to be not only consistently playing but also writing his name in records of the Premier League.
The veteran attacker originally joined Stoke City back on August of 2011 for a transfer fee of £10 million and Peter Crouch was a regular starter for the English club during his initial 4 seasons but when the season of 2015-16 kicked off, Crouch started seeing more time on the sidelines and now he is currently a on and off player with some appearances on certain matches but not all of them like it used to be a few years ago.
Even though Peter Crouch is beginning to see more of his time being spent on the sidelines, Stoke City recently offered him a contract extension which will be keeping the 35 year old player with the Premier League club at least until 2018.
Whether or not Peter Crouch starts getting more time in the first team of Mark Hughes is something that remains to be seen but taking into consideration the fact that Crouch has to compete against the likes of MameDiouf, BojanKrkic, Wilfried Bony and other players that are significantly younger than him, it will be very difficult for Peter Crouch to play an important role in Stoke City like he used to do a few years ago when he joined Stoke City.
