Stefan Maierhofer: ‘Wolves Are Taking The P*$$’

As reported yesterday, Wolves striker Stefan Maierhofer has joined Bristol City on an emergency loan, and the Austrian target man seems overjoyed with the circumstances in which he currently finds himself.

The 27-year-old forward cannot understand why manager Mick McCarthy is so reluctant to give him a run out, considering the dearth of goals managed by his fellow strikers this season;

“I don’t have a clue why I’ve not been in the team. I work hard in training, yet others get to play. Why have Wolves signed me only to not use me? Kevin Doyle cost £6.5 million, so he has to play, yet he has just got six goals in 25 games which is not a great deal.

“The manager told me I lacked match practice after my operation then Andy Keogh came back from a three-month lay-off, trained for two days and then played against Bolton and Manchester United.

“I feel like they are taking the p*$$ out of me.”

Maierhofer cost Wolves the best part of £2 million when he joined from Rapid Vienna in August of last year, but has managed only 8 appearances in the ‘old gold’ – his last coming in the controversial 3-0 defeat at the hand’s of Manchester United in mid-December.

    Don’t worry Stefan, it feels a bit like Wolves are taking the p1$$ out of us, too. I cant remember seeing a more abject performance from a player on loan looking for match practice as that which I saw last night at Plymouth. Absolutely p1$$ poor! Must try harder

    Pile of shite. An out of condition Andy Keogh looks like Wayne Rooney in comparison.

  3. Joe says:

    Personally, I’d be pretty sodding happy to exchange Wolverhampton for Bristol as a place to live…
