Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Karl Henry has said that the club should be looking at keeping the top players, despite the relegation from the Premier league. The club were relegated from the Premier league after finishing bottom of the table last season.
As a result, it has been expected that they will be selling a number of top players like Kevin Doyle in order to balance the books, but Karl Henry reckons that the club should be taking the risk at least for one season in order to get back to the Premier league in the first instance. He has quoted the work done by the likes of West Ham and Newcastle, who have done the same way.
Karl Henry has said that there is every possibility that the club will be able to keep the key players like Steven Fletcher due to the fact that a number of the players have taken around 50 percentage wage cut after their relegation to the Championship. Terry Connor was the man selected to replace sacked Mick McCarthy midway through the campaign, but the experiment did not work on little bit after the club lost a majority of the remaining matches. Karl Henry has attributed the lack of confidence towards this aspect.
“It was evident that a lot of our success was built on team spirit and work ethic and it clearly wasn’t there last season. We’re not good enough to just turn up and win games with the quality of our football alone. But what got us through before was that we worked together and we were a unit. It gives everyone in the squad a lift and sends out the signal that we want to get promoted as soon as possible. So I hope they do what they can to keep the players,” said Henry.
