Stoke manager Tony Pulis reflected on a thrilling seven-month adventure to the corners of the continent after his side's Europa League run was finally brought to an end by Valencia in the last 32.

After beating Hajduk Split in Croatia in their very first game on August 4 and then coming through a group containing Besiktas, Dynamo Kiev and Maccabi Tel Aviv, Stoke found Champions League regulars Valencia one step too far.

Defeat at home last week left the Potters with a mountain to climb and they might have managed it had Kenwyne Jones taken one of two glorious opportunities but Jonas' 24th-minute goal earned Los Che a 1-0 win on the night and 2-0 on aggregate. Pulis said of the run: "It's been fantastic, we've really enjoyed it. It's given everybody at the club a lift."
