Afobe Keen To Rekindle Wolves Form

Benik Afobe is aiming to hit the ground running and rekindle the form from his “best year of football” following his return to Wolves on Wednesday.

Two years after his departure the striker is back at Wolves, where he scored 23 times in 48 games in gold and black, prior to his move to the Premier League.

Back at Molineux having joined on loan from Bournemouth, Afobe is now keen to finish the job he started with Wolves.

“I have unfinished business here,” he said. “I've been keeping tabs on the club and the team for the whole season. I obviously still have friends here, they've been doing great.

"Two years ago I left, everyone knows that, it's been good playing at Bournemouth in the Premier League but I'm glad to be home, this feels like home for me.

"It was probably the best year of football I had. I just thank Wolves for giving me the opportunity to come back and hopefully I can score goals from now until the end of the season.”

The 24-year-old slots into a squad sat top of the Championship and believes he’ll further enhance the group with the qualities he has to offer in front of goal.

"I'm confident, I believe in myself and I just have all the people at Wolves to thank for giving me this opportunity again. Hopefully I can repay them and the fans with some goals.

"I haven't been to Molineux yet but I can't wait until Saturday and the fans obviously took to me when I was here – hopefully I can do my best to work hard for them and the club and it can be a great time for me here again.

“Hopefully I can help the boys get over the line for promotion and win the league.”

The striker played with a number of the current Wolves squad and admits to using his contacts before finalising his return on deadline day.

“That's the aim now. I'm best mates with Matt Doherty and he said to me at the beginning of the season that they've got a great chance. He's been saying all along they're going to win the league and the boys have been great here.

"It always makes it easier that you've got friends here, you know the club, you know how it's run. There's a new manager and a new owner which is good because they're very ambitious and want to be playing at the highest level.

"I've always wished nothing but the best for Wolves whether I was here or not here. I'm just hoping we can do it now and have a strong second half of the season," he added.
