Benik Afobe

The 22-year-old Bournemouth forward took to social media responding to comments about his time at Wolves.

Bournemouth striker Benik Afobe took to Twitter on Thursday morning to respond to comments from Wolverhampton Wanderers he found 'too shocking and very hurtful.'

Indeed, it was implied the young forward didn't put the effort in during his final weeks at Wolves while requesting to leave the club.

The 22-year-old, however, took to social media stating his position - that he did his best in the Midlands and that he was dignified in asking to leave, ultimately securing a move to the Premier League with Bournemouth.

In response... both Wolves and Bournemouth fans have come out in support of Afobe.

There will always be those who disagree and some supporters suggested the striker was wrong to sign a three-and-a-half year deal before asking to leave the club so soon after.

The Cherries faithful, though, gave the forward their support - they feel he earned a move to Bournemouth and the top flight.

Many, many Wolves fans, meanwhile, don't blame Afobe for wanting to leave Molineux considering the lack of progress the club are making. Here's a selection of the supporter responses...
