Elokobi gutted for Wolves crock Ward

George Elokobi is upset for fellow Wolves fullback Stephen Ward after he was ruled out for six weeks with a knee injury.

The pair may be rivals on the pitch for the position of left-sided defender but they are friends off it and Elokobi knows better than most how heartbreaking injury can be, as he missed Wolves' entire promotion campaign last season after undergoing knee surgery.

He told the Birmingham Mail: "I texted Wardy to wish him a speedy recovery and let him know everyone at the club is behind him and supporting him.

"It's a shame because you never wish for one of your team-mates to get injured.

"It was meant to be a routine, minor operation to trim the cartilage but they found they needed to do more and now he's going to be out for between six to 12 weeks."
