Great Professional

Great Professional

Wolves CEO Jez Moxey has heaped praise upon outgoing Assistant Manager Stuart Gray, thanking him for his sterling service in often quite difficult circumstances.

'I'd like to pay tribute to Stuart who has performed exceptionally well from the moment he walked into the club. He is a great professional.' Jez told the clubs official site.

He also revealed that Gray, who was shortlisted for the then vacant managers position came within a whiskers breadth of making the move up to Manager, and that the decision for going over his head was not based purely on footballing reasons, adding :

'Under different circumstances he could have been offered the (managers) job. However, we do feel that he might not have received the support from fans that he would have deserved and required.'

Some may think that unkind, but it is also undeniably true.

Always the bridesmaid, and never the bride, Gray who was twice Caretaker boss would always be inextricably linked with the last 4 failed campaigns, and with a tough season ahead, his appointment would surely have led to an unhappy union.
