Wolves’ Danny Batth has said to the Express & Star that he can’t wait for the opening game of the season.
Last season saw Wolves finish in 14th place in what was a very mediocre year for the club. They never looked like pushing for a play off spot at any time and at one point during the season it looked like Kenny Jackett would be sacked.
In the close season though, Wolves underwent a massive revolution. They were taken over by Fosun International and Jackett was eventually shown the door to be replaced by Walter Zenga who’s previously managed the likes of Red Star Belgrade, Palermo and Al-Shaab. An influx of players has already started with Silvio and Joao Teixeria joining with big name players such as Anderson Talisca believed to be following in the next few days.
But despite all of these changes during the summer, Batth is expected to be a mainstay in the defence for the coming season. Last season he made 39 appearances for the club and scored two goals though some of his performances came in for criticism from the Wolves fanbase, so he will be hoping to improve for this season’s promotion bid.
And ahead of their opening game of the season against Rotherham United, Batth said: “We’re very excited and looking forward to getting it under way at Rotherham,”
“(Walter Zenga) has been asking the players to learn and learn quickly, which is what we want to do.”
“The changes haven’t been massive, just little tweaks here and there.”
“We’ll adapt to that. It’s important we’re all ready for Saturday.”
