Hennessey apologises to Wolves

Hennessey apologises to Wolves

Wayne Hennessey has apologised for sitting out Wolves league defeat to Gillingham on Friday after being linked with both Crystal Palace and West Ham United.

Personally I was really disappointed in what happened last week.

I know finances are heavily playing their part in Kenny Jackett's rebuilding of Wolverhampton Wanderers, but after Wayne Hennessey had proven that he had returned to full fitness, not only in the Championship with Yeovil Town, but also with Wales, I would have liked to have seen him displace first choice shotstopper Carl Ikeme in net.

So when it was revealed that Ikeme had been ruled out for six weeks after the goalkeeper broke his hand, I thought that Hennessey had quite literally been 'handed his chance'.

After all his injury problems he was finally set to play and make his first Wolves first team appearance since April 2012.

However, probably on the advice of his agent, with Crystal Palace and West Ham United rumoured to be interested Hennessey disappointed everyone by informing Kenny Jackett that he didn't want to play.

That forced Kenny Jackett to field Aaron McCarey who had only just been called back from his loan spell with York City.

So why did Wayne Hennessey not want to play?

"With hindsight I would have done things differently, and I know that whatever I say is not going to change what I have done but I am sorry," Hennessey told the Express & Star. The 26-year-old added: "I have apologised to Kenny but I also wanted to apologise to the club and the supporters who have always been great to me while I have been at Wolves through the good times and also my recent injuries when I worked really hard to get back.

"I just want to try and make fans aware of what I was thinking, and why I thought I was doing the right thing for myself and for the club.

"I assumed that with the transfer speculation surrounding me it would make sense both for me and the club not to play in the game but I realise that I was wrong.

Reports in London suggest that a bid from Crystal Palace was rejected over the weekend, whilst West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce has denied he is interested in the shotstopper.
