Wolves keeper Murray not jealous of Lescott's Man City success

Wolves goalkeeper Matt Murray is delighted for former teammate Joleon Lescott over his success with Manchester City and England.

"Jealous? I think jealous means you wish they didn't have it and you did. And that's not me at all," says Murray.

"I'm buzzing for Joleon, buzzing for all the lads. Keano (Robbie Keane), Keith (Andrews) at Blackburn, 'Nayls' (Lee Naylor) playing Champions League football at Celtic.

In the summer, I'm off to South Africa to watch the Irish at the World Cup assuming they qualify. That will be unbelievable. No, I don't resent them a moment of it, not at all.

"Maybe I could have a few hundred games under my belt but I would never be arrogant enough to complain about my life. I have got a lovely wife and two beautiful kids.

"However, if I could just have one thing more, to be complete, it would be to get fit again. Just give me that please and this man could never ask for anything more. . ."
