Wolves in the EFL: Do you remember Jack Price? Here’s how he is getting on these days..

Wolves have had a remarkable rise in recent years, with Nuno Espirito Santo transforming the club since he was appointed.

However, the rollercoaster for Wanderers fans began before that, and many will have positive memories the 2013/14 season when they won the League One title under Kenny Jackett.

Whilst dropping to the third tier was embarrassing, it gave the club the chance to start fresh, with high earners shipped out and a new approach implemented.

That saw a focus on youth, and one man who benefited from that was Jack Price.

The academy graduate would go on to make over 100 appearances in Old Gold, but it’s the first 26 in that title-winning season that were probably the best.

Price would manage to establish himself as a regular in the XI, forming a very productive partnership alongside Kevin McDonald in the heart of the midfield. Those two, with their excellent passing ability, gave the likes of James Henry, Bakary Sako and Nouha Dicko the platform to perform.

Wolves, who were clearly too good for the rest of the league, had some amazing days that year, with a 6-4 victory over Rotherham, which brought numerous pitch invasions, summing up what was a crazy, exciting season.

Following on from that, Price would do okay in the Championship, but he wasn’t the important member of the team that he had been.

Did these 25 players make more or less than 100 Wolves appearances?

Eventually, Jackett would depart, with Walter Zenga and Paul Lambert having unsuccessful spells in charge, but Price’s situation didn’t really change. With new owners Fosun spending big money, it became apparent that Price wasn’t going to feature regularly, although he was around for the first six months of Santo’s reign.

In search of regular football, he sealed a surprise switch to Colorado Rapids in MLS, and it’s a move that has paid off.

The 28-year-old is a key player for his team, and is now the captain, putting in impressive performances over the past three years, which saw him break a record for assists from set-pieces, and he was also named as the Rapids’ MVP for 2020.

Having recently signed an extension to stay in the US, it appears as though Price is loving life right now, and whilst Wolves have moved on as a club since he departed, the midfielder will still be remembered fondly at Molineux.
