JACKETT DEFENDS SALE OF STEARMAN
THE fans might not be happy, but Wolves manager Kenny Jackett has defended the decision to allow Richard Stearman to leave and join Fulham.
Stearman moved to Craven Cottage for £2million on transfer deadline day after spending seven years with Wolves.
He was named Player of the Year at Molineux last season, but Jackett is adamant moving the defender on is in the club’s best interests.
“He was allowed to leave before I was here – to Ipswich on loan – and then was part of the side at Wolves going up from League One,” Jackett said.
“For the last two years he’s been a good player for me and I do appreciate what he’s done, I really do.
“I do feel, also, you have to make decisions to move the club forward.
“We wish Richard all the best at Fulham.
“But things can’t stand still.We have to move on. We feel, and I feel, it’s the right decision and the right time.”
