Franek Gets His Chance
Tomasz Frankowski, so far left out of Mick McCarthy's plans will finally get the chance to impress his new boss tommorow night, when Wolves take on Chesterfield in the League Cup.
Franek, recently recalled to the goal shy Poland international team has earned his recall after impressing McCarthy during training and following his return to international duty.
A situation McCarthy is no stranger to, as he told the clubs official site
'Everyone has been asking me about Tomasz and here's an opportunity for him.
'He's looked brighter in training since coming back from international duty.
'That happened to me when I was at Millwall and I'd been out of the team. I went away and played for Ireland and it gave me a lift. I came back feeling refreshed.' said Mick.
He was also at pains to point out that anyone that starts unde his new regime does so on current form, not on reputation.
'I was at pains to tell the players when I first came here that they will get opportunities. I pick the team on merit not favouritism.
'Look how well Daniel Jones took his chance last weekend. The same goes for Darren Potter and Karl Henry.'
Despite his lack of starts so far this season, Leo Beenkakke has chosen to keep Franek in the Poland squad for the upcoming Euro '08 qualifiers, a fact that must go somewhere to bolstering the confidence of the under performing striker, seen as something of a white elephant to many Wolves fans.
But on the basis of recent training ground efforts, McCarthy is ready to let the fox in the box loose once more in attempt to break his Wolverhampton Wanderers duck, as he went on to explain.
'Tomasz is in the Poland squad for the next game too and has looked good in training. The Chesterfield game gives me a chance to rest a couple of the lads and give opportunities to others like Tomasz.'
An opportunity that Franek surely cannot afford to miss.
