Wolves boss not feeling pressure despite fan frustration, not seeking assurances



Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett has insisted he is not feeling the pressure or looking for assurances from the club’s board in regards to his future despite mounting fan frustration, report the Express and Star


It’s been a frustrating campaign at Molinuex for the former Millwall boss, who has been unable to get his side in line to mount a serious push for the playoffs.

Star striker Benik Afobe was sold in January to Bournemouth and goals have been hard to come by ever since his £12m departure for the South Coast.

No Wolves forward has been able to score since February and at the side have lacked a certain dynamism in the final third.

The vultures are again thought to be circling over highly rated talents Dominic Iorfa and Kortney Hause, with both players linked with a move to the top tier themselves.

However, the 57-year old has insisted the fact he was recently publicly backed by the club’s board does not mean he feels under pressure in his role and will continue to plan for next season.

“Certainly for my bosses, Kevin Thelwell, Jez Moxey and to a degree then Steve Morgan, it’s been business as usual,” he stated.

“It’s not something that’s necessarily always touched upon, about who and where, going forward, but obviously three wins out of 18, whoever is sat here then there are questions.

Marooned in mid-table, the Midlands outfit travel to the City Ground to square off against Nottingham Forest this weekend before hosting Sheffield Wednesday on the last day.

Is Jackett the right man for Wolves? How much pressure is he under to get things right next season?
