The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

KENNY JACK­ETT has called on his Wolves’ de­fend­ers to follow the ex­am­ple of the for­mi­da­ble for­mer Manch­ester United part­ner­ship forged be­tween Rio Fer­di­nand and Ne­manja Vidic as he looks to build from the back.

Wolves’ de­fence has re­mained fru­gal on their re­turn to the Cham­pi­onship and Jack­ett hopes repli­cat­ing the ex-Manch­ester United pair can push them on to fur­ther heights.

“The best de­fend­ers can stay on their feet and in­ter­cept,” he said.“If you put the ball in be­hind Fer­di­nand and Vidic, they could win it back and pass into mid­field to set off the team’s next at­tack. That’s some­thing I ask my de­fend­ers to con­cen­trate on.”
