Mouyokolo wants to prove himself

Mouyokolo wants to prove himself

If you thought you had seen the last of Steven Mouyokolo at Wolves think again.

25-year-old joined Wolves from Hull City in June 2010 for an undisclosed fee, signing a four-year-deal with an option for a fifth year.

After impressing for Hull during their relegation season, many had thought that we had not only signed one for the future, but one for right now too, but he failed to break into Mick McCarthy's side and made just seven appearances in all competitions.

Last season he moved back to France on loan with Sochaux, but made just four appearances before suffering a cruciate ligament injury.

He remains a couple of months away from a return to training, but he has returned to England a lot more focussed that before.

He's moved closer to the training ground and appears to really want to make things work in Wolverhampton.

"It`s been frustrating and sometimes it feels like slow progress but I`m feeling positive now," he told the Birmingham Mail.

He continued: "When I was at the rehab centre I was with people who`d been in car accidents and motorcycle accidents who were far worse off than I was, so I`m staying positive and working hard to get back fit again. I may well pop back to France to see the surgeon but apart from that I`m back here for good."

"I know what I am capable of and the fans haven`t seen it here yet - nobody here has seen it. It`s not going to be easy - it`s going to be hard and I`ve got to be patient with my fitness - but once I`m back again I am not worried. I just feel different now, I think the last year has changed me, and I am happy to be back here now and can`t wait to be fit again.

Vital Wolves Comment: With a new manager he of course will have a clean slate to prove himself once he returns to fitness.

Until then I will reserve judgement!
