Dominic Iorfa admits he wants centre-back role for Wolves

The 20-year-old says he'd rather have a centre-back role for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Speaking to the club's official website, Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Dominic Iorfa has admitted that he feels more comfortable playing centre-back rather than right-back.

The 20-year-old's entire senior career has been spent on the right side of the back-four, but manager Kenny Jackett took the decision to give him a centre-back role for the final three Championship games of the season, in which the team conceded twice.

And Iorfa, an England Under-21 international, admits that he feels more comfortable when operating in the middle of defence, but reveals that he did enjoy his time at right-back, too.

“That was enjoyable to play there a few times at the end of the season – it has been a while!” he told Wolves' official website. “It was always my position growing up and playing in the youth team and Under-21s but since I have been in the first team it had always been at right back.

“Some of the lads in the team that have joined more recently didn’t even know that I had played so much at centre back. I enjoyed being back there and it was good to play in that position again.

“Having grown up and played so much as a centre back it is probably a position I know more and feel more comfortable in. I have enjoyed right back as well and that has been a position where I have adapted and been learning about it every day."

Wolves finished a disappointing 14th in the Championship this past season as the wheels came off their season to some degree, with Jackett's side managing just four victories from their last 20 outings.

Given that only goal difference denied them a playoff spot in the previous season, it was a bitterly disappointing way to follow up that finish, but things may be different next time around.

Iorfa started 42 games for Wanderers this past season.
