Maierhofer feeling snubbed

Austria international striker Stefan Maierhofer has voiced his unhappiness with the way he has been treated since joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer.

The 27-year-old frontman has made just two starts and seven appearances as a substitute for Mick McCarthy's side and has been loaned out to Bristol City to gain regular first-team action.

That situation has clearly annoyed Maierhofer, who underwent hernia surgery earlier this year.

He told the Daily Star:"I don't have a clue why I've not been in the team. I work hard in training, yet others get to play.

"Why have Wolves signed me only to not use me? Kevin Doyle cost £6.5million, so he has to play yet he has just got six goals in 25 games, which is not a great deal.

"The manager told me I lacked match practice after my operation.

"Then Andy Keogh came back from a three-month lay-off, trained for two days and then played against Bolton and Manchester United.

"I feel like they are taking the mickey out of me."
