VAN SAYS HIS FIRST GOAL WILL BE SPARK
IT HAS been a topsy-turvy season for Rajiv Van La Parra, but the Dutchman is back at Wolves, leading the line and ready to start chipping in with some goals.
Van La Parra fell out of favour at Molineux early in the season and came close to joining both Leeds and Bolton on permanent deals.
Eventually, he ended up on loan at Brighton, but the 24-year-old is back in the Midlands and in Kenny Jackett’s starting line-up.
Traditionally a winger by trade, he has been asked to fill the gap up front vacated by Bournemouth-bound Benik Afobe.
Van La Parra believes all he needs is one goal for the floodgates to open and Wolves fans to welcome him back with open arms.
“If you play games and you’re not scoring goals, you have to keep calm and not think too much about the chances you miss,” he said. “Because everyone misses chances.
“The gaffer likes a player with pace up front and I’m happy I can be that player. He was happy with my performance and that’s important for me.”
