Afobe: I've found a home at Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Benik Afobe has explained what's made him feel at home at the club.

Wolves star Benik Afobe has told the club’s website that he feels he’s found a home at the club.

The 22-year-old forward has suggested that the fans and the staff at the club have had a positive impact on him since he arrived at Wolves, which is one of the reasons he’s in such good form.

“They have taken to me from day one, since I arrived in January. I have been blessed in that sense and have a lot to thank them for,” said Afobe.

“The gaffer and the staff have been just as good as the fans and I feel like I have found a home.”

Having a player who has a settled and comfortable mentality is important, especially when that player is the man at the top of the team’s attack.

The benefits have been obvious for anyone who has seen Afobe play in the last couple of weeks.

He has four goals in his last six appearances and if Wolves are going to consolidate in a play-off place before the end of the season, it’s important Afobe’s good run of form continues.

He’s fully justified the fee that was paid for him during the January transfer window and it’s important that Kenny Jackett continues to challenge him over the rest of the Championship season.

The boss can play on the potential of the Premier League platform for him to perform on and use that as motivation for him to maintain his consistency.
