Stoke City defender Robert Huth has insisted that he is excited by the competition for places at the club.
"Game on - everyone's place is up for grabs," Huth, 28, told the club's official website.
"All the positions that were occupied last season are there to be taken with a new manager. I've got to keep my head together and stay fit and see what happens."
Huth joined Stoke from Middlesbrough in 2009.
