Morgan Gibbs-White: Few work harder than Wolves
Morgan Gibbs-White insists Wolves are one of the most ‘hard-working and organised’ teams in the country as they look to knock off Leicester.
The 20-year-old academy product, who recently returned from a long-standing back issue, feels fresh after a productive trip to Marbella – and says his team-mates feel the same.
Having trained in the Spanish sun for five days of the fortnight-long winter break while other teams decided to give their players an extended period of time off, he said going into Friday night’s clash with the Foxes: “I think that sums us up as a team. We are a pack.
“I feel like the manager wanted work to be done, so instead of being freezing cold, he took us to Marbella – a chilled sort of break, but also working hard.
“Some clubs may be coming back a bit unfit, but we have managed to maintain it and, hopefully, we can kick on against Leicester and put in a good performance.”
Wolves have already played 41 games this term in all competitions.
“As well as all the talent we’ve got and the potential we’ve got, I feel like we are one of the most hard-working teams and organised teams in the league,” said Gibbs-White.
“So, we’ll be going into the game with confidence, wanting to win the game – while bearing in mind it’s going to be a tough game.
“I feel like we have the desire and hard work to pull through the game.”
And on a personal front, playmaker Gibbs-White is ready to make an impact after a frustrating spell on the sidelines.
“Definitely. The injury was tough to get through, but now I’m back and have played a few games, so my fitness is there,” he added.
“There’s time now to help the team out, and finish as high as we can.”
