WATCH: Saido Berahino 'turns up ready for Man United game'... a day early

Saido Berahino, bless him, hasn't always had it his own way in his first year at Stoke City.

A year after his arrival, he's yet to find the back of the net for the club. Not ideal for a striker, really.

Still, you can't knock the bloke's dedication*, as was proven again on Sunday. The 24-year-old - seemingly itching to kick off the post-Mark Hughes era at Stoke - appeared to be the first member of their squad to turn up at the club's training ground in preparation for their departure to Manchester.

The problem for poor Sadio, however, was that the game was only taking place on Monday evening


Yep, according to Kurt Zouma's Instagram, at least, Berahino had turned up over 24 hours before he was supposed to.

Oh mate. It's like the professional footballing equivalent of turning up to school in your uniform only to be told by the caretaker that it's a teacher training day.

Just to reiterate, Stoke City play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Monday night. Got that Saido, pal? If Zouma's IG is anything to go by, he's got no excuse for missing the bus.

Should they win against second-place United, they would climb out of the relegation zone.

*Stoke fans might disagree.
