'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Rohan Airs Concerns

Mercurial midfielder and memory man Rohan Ricketts has aired his, and other squad members concerns over the manager situation, or lack of it, at Molineux.

Speaking to The Birmingham Post he said :

'It's a difficult situation at the moment because no-one really knows what's happening, either the players or the staff,'

'The sooner decisions are made the better so we'll get a good structure in place for the start of the season.

'It's difficult because there are probably people here who don't really know whether they're going to be here in the future.'

It's obvious that the current situation is to no-ones liking. Not the players, or the backroom staff. And Rohan has his own ideas on what kind of individual is needed to fill the post vacated by Glenn Hoddle.


'I wouldn't call it uneasy, and Stuart and TC (Terry Connor) are doing a good job, but subconsciously every-body's wondering about what's going to happen.'

'I think we need a manager with presence, who is good at dealing with his players man-to-man,' he added.

'It's got to be someone who recognises that every player is different, and needs different treatment in order to get the best out of them.

'He's got to be someone who is one of the boys in a way, but then obviously keeps his distance as well.'

But the pressing issue, the one that everyone wants an anser to he leaves until last. exactly what happened to his passport, and what did he get up to whilst the rest of the squad where put through their paces in Alicante?

'It is nice to be back in training but I lost my passport which meant I couldn't go away with the boys for the training camp in Spain,' he said.

'Obviously that was disappointing but it's something I've just had to get on with - it's no use crying over spilt milk.

'I carried on coming in to the training ground and doing my work under the guidance of Baz (physio Barry Holmes).

Thanks fo clearing that up Rohan.

After a very bright start to his Wolves career, Rohan has rarely hit the sam levels as he did against Reading at the end of the2004/5 season when he scored the winner at the Madjeski Stadium.

If whoever takes on the mantle of Wolves manager in then next few weeks can help him regain that kind of form, maybe the passport incident, like the passport itself will be forgotten.

But if not, its doubtful Rohan will be in need of one should an exit from Molineux be on the cards

i think like many players rickets has under-performed and the passport incident sums up him and the club at present.i think a lot of them need to concentate on not just impressing the incoming manager but to start to entertainthe fans again!
