As reported by Express & Star, Benik Afobe has stated that he has unfinished business at Molineux following his season-long loan move back to the club.
Afobe, 24, made the switch back to Wolverhampton Wanderers following a poor season of Premier League action with AFC Bournemouth. The forward has not been able to find his footing down south and has therefore decided to pick up where he left off in the Midlands.
When speaking to the club’s official website, Afobe seemed passionate when speaking about both the past and the future of his young career.
"It's unbelievable," he said. "Two years ago I left, everyone knows that, it's been good playing at Bournemouth in the Premier League but I'm glad to be home, this feels like home for me.
"It was probably the best year of football I had. I just thank Wolves for giving me the opportunity to come back and hopefully I can score goals from now until the end of the season.
"I have unfinished business here. I've been keeping tabs on the club and the team for the whole season. I obviously still have friends here, they've been doing great.”
While it may have been two long years since Wolves fans were able to see him pull on the old gold and black strip, nobody from the area will be able to forget that phenomenal season where he tore the Championship apart alongside Nouha Dicko and Bakary Sako.
Unfortunately getting the whole gang back together may be a bit of a stretch, but given the talented players around him, Afobe should have no problem finding the back of the net on a consistent basis.
From Jota to Cavaleiro and beyond, Wolves have been able to establish a team full of more natural ability than we have ever seen in the second tier before. Their strength in depth truly is frightening, and now they possess a striker who has a proven scoring talent at this level.
With the gap at the top already 11 points, you have to question whether or not anyone will be able to catch Wolves at this stage.
Rival fans seem to be angling towards Afobe being ‘nothing more than a Championship player’ but, given his age, Wolves supporters can be confident in knowing that he will only continue to grow as a professional footballer.
The next step in the Afobe comeback tour comes tomorrow night when he will be expected to play some role in the league leaders’ clash with Sheffield United.
