Wolves fans have hit back at Benik Afobe after he criticised the club, speaking to The Sun.
Afobe was involved in a peculiar transfer earlier this year when he signed for Wolves permanently from Bournemouth, before being moved on to Stoke City on loan with a view to a permanent deal in January.
Wolves would make a small profit from the deal, but Afobe felt disrespected by the club's approach towards him.
He said: "It was disrespectful. I’ve got a baby daughter and a heavily pregnant wife. The last thing we needed was to be messed about.
“It also caused embarrassment. Everywhere I went, football fans would ask about it and I’ve had to justify myself to not look stupid.”
Wolves fans though have little sympathy for Afobe after he walked out on the club to join Bournemouth in 2016.
He had been at Wolves for just one year before pushing through a mid-season move to the Premier League side, and fans were disappointed with him at the time.
He re-signed with the club on loan last season before his odd transfer this summer.
Fans have criticised Afobe's comments and believe he should be very much aware of how much a business the transfer market is.
Find the Afobe situation slightly weird, technically still on the cards here like so when he joined us from Bournemouth before slating them.. seems like the sort of player we didn’t think he was, doesn’t get his own way and kicks off #wwfc— FoxBall (@foxballmedia) August 3, 2018
- Afobe was more than happy to leave @Wolves the first time when we were less successful— Old and Gold (@Joninwhite) August 3, 2018
- Then he announces true love and signs because we are going places
- Now #wwfc are disrespectful
If a big club approached #scfc he’d want out like a rat up a drain pipe
Deal with it. https://t.co/ZcGREyCmJE
with regards to Afobe. He didnt give a damn about us when he left for little Bournemouth...now the shoes on the other foot aint it #wwfc— Matt Davies (@MattD_93) August 3, 2018
It may not be ‘nice’ how we treated Afobe, but I’m sorry... Benik didn’t care much about being ruthless two years ago.... Told us he was staying, then HE changed his mind..— Jodie (@Jodes__) August 3, 2018
