Bassong calls for Wolves unity

Sebastian Bassong has urged his Wolves team-mates to stick together if they are to stand any chance of staying in the Premier League.

The Cameroon international is on loan at Molineux from Tottenham, and his adopted club are bottom of the league with seven games remaining.

Roger Johnson and Wayne Hennessy had a confrontation in the Midlands club’s 3-2 defeat to Bolton last weekend, but the African centre half has called for unity from the playing staff.

“I think everyone has to deal with their own problems,” he told Mirror Football.

“If you start focusing on everyone else’s, you’re never going to solve your own.

“We’ve got to be more professional, focus on our own work and make sure what each of us is doing is right before opening our mouths and advising someone else.

“That’s what I’m trying to do – keep my head and ignore all the negative stuff.

“The most important thing is what happens on the pitch because that’s where we can fix everything else around us.

“It’s never easy in a situation like the one we’re in. It’s all about trying to get the confidence back,” he concluded.

Wolves take on Stoke at the Britannia Stadium this Saturday.
