Wolves ace Milijas: Of course I'm Premiership class

Wolves midfielder Nenad Milijas feels he's now ready to play regularly in the Premiership.

The Serb struck a stunning goal in victory over Bolton Wanderers on Saturday.

"I've always thought I was ready for the Premier League, but the gaffer is the one who picks the team," he told the Express & Star. "I'm happy whenever I play - whether it's 20 minutes, half an hour or the whole game - I'll always give my best for the side.

"I'm always thinking of how I can improve - if I didn't think that, I wouldn't have come to play in England. I try to be better in every training session."

Milijas revealed he has been working on the physical side of the game to ensure he is not considered a luxury player.

"I've been doing stuff I found harder when I first arrived, such as playing slightly differently and not making fouls," he said. "Now I feel I'm playing better, but I feel I can be better still."
