Wolves defender is building up to 90-minute run-out

Wolverhampton Wanderers’ defender Ronald Zubar is looking forward to getting back into the fold at Molineux after patiently sitting out the end of last season whilst recovering from back surgery.  

The Frenchman has had a stop-start career at Wolves, but after making 48 appearances, he is determined to becoming a regular fixture in Mick McCarthy’s starting XI.

“I've missed too long with injury so it was really good to get my first 45 minutes at Notts County,” said the versatile centre back as he eases himself back to full fitness.

"It was the first time I'd played since the operation so I had to look after myself a little bit but it was just good to get out there and then follow it up with ten minutes at Celtic and 75 minutes at Ipswich.

"Having been out for so long it's always been a case for me of making sure everything is fine and not rushing it. It's about me getting back to playing and showing what I can do and building it up as the friendlies go on.

"We're getting closer to the start of the season now so there is more focus on our shape and how we play.”



Roger Johnson takes up his place in the defence as Wolves’ new skipper, but Zubar is ready to fight for his place in the West Midlands back line, which is bulging at the seams with first team hopefuls.

He said: "It's part of football to have competition for places. If a player is injured and someone else comes in, if he plays well he stays in the team. Everybody knows what I can do when I am playing well and I just have to get back to that and see what happens.

"It's taking things one stage at a time but the more players we have fit and available the better for everyone. It's a long season and I'm sure we'll all get a chance."
