Michal Zyro wants to become Wolverhampton Wanderers' main striker


Michal Zyro has scored two goals in his first two appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers new boy Michal Zyro has told the Express and Star that he enjoys playing up front more than in any other position.

Zyro became Wolves’ first signing of the January transfer window, and his versatility means that he can play in a range of positions across the front line.

Kenny Jackett has already suggested that the Polish international could be used as a striker or a winger, but Zyro has his sights set on becoming the side’s number nine.

“The last few years I’ve played for Legia as a winger, or midfield player, it [playing as a striker] was something new for me but I prefer it and was lucky to score," Zyro said. 

"I have to say thank you [to the fans].”

Zyro has made a wonderful start to life at Wolves, after netting twice in Jackett’s side 3-2 win against Fulham.

The former Legia Warsaw man showed great ability to score both his goals at Molineux on Tuesday night, and help his side claim their fourth win in a row.

Zyro has big boots to fill at Wolves, given that he is currently filling the void left by Benik Afobe.

Wolves’ win over Fulham has helped the side accelerate up the Championship table.

Jackett’s men are now in 10th place, and they are just seven points back from the play offs.
