Richard Stearman says that the club are definitely on the right path
Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Richard Stearman says that the club are definitely on the right path under the management of Kenny Jackett despite failing to get into the play-offs at the last moment.
Wolves looked on course for a second consecutive promotion after being in the top three of the Championship for much of the campaign. However, a string of poor results during certain parts of the campaign proved more than disastrous, as they finished just outside the play-offs. Ipswich Town got into the final play-off spot by virtue of only goal difference.Jackett was left bitterly disappointed in his second campaign.
Stearman has benefited immensely duringJackett’s reign as the Wolves manager. The 27-year-old’s career at the club looked to be in tatters after an injury laden spell just after the club was relegated. The fact that Wolves were in League One also made it high possibility that Stearman would be sold in order to generate some funds. This, however, did not happen. Instead, Stearman became an integral part of the promotion that came with a record points tally. Wolves dominated the third division and got back into the Championship in the first attempt. Even though they have failed to gain promotion back to the top flight, Stearman thinks that the club is safe in the hands ofJackett.
“How long have you got?!First and foremost his coaching, his man-management, his knowledge of the leagues are all very good.He’s been very good for me personally with the performances I’ve put in over the last couple of years.His stats don’t lie; the amount of points he’s amassed as a manager and the wins he’s racked up so quickly, so the proof is in the pudding. He’s one of the very top managers I’ve played for - look at what he’s produced both on and off the pitch here at Wolves,” said Stearman.
