Wolves outcast Bjorn Sigurdarson today lifted the lid on his Molineux nightmare, calling it “hell”.
The 23-year-old forward is currently resurrecting his career on loan at Molde, where he will be until their season ends in November. Sigurdarson was one of four strikers head coach Kenny Jackett allowed to leave in January with Kevin Doyle, Leigh Griffiths and Jake Cassidy. And the Icelandic attacker, who has scored two goals in five games for the Tippeliga leaders, is relieved to be back on familiar territory after revealing he felt he had been made to feel inferior at Wolves.
“To show you actually can play, not just sit on the bench and such, is fantastic for me,” said Sigurdarson, speaking in Norway.
“Of course you’ll doubt yourself when you’re not used, absolutely.
“When the manager doesn’t like you, no matter what you do or how good you are in training, you get the message: ‘No, you’re not in the squad’.
“You’re not good enough. Then you just want dig yourself under the grass. It becomes hell. So it was fantastic that Molde wanted me and that I got to go back.”
For Wolves, Sigurdarson found the net twice in 16 league appearances last season, his final game coming in the 3-3 draw at Rotherham on December 21 after which he played no part in the following seven matches before his move.
Sigurdarson also admitted he struggled to fit in at Wolves. “I feel at home in Norway,” he said.
“These are great guys. In England you don’t make friends in the team. Here we eat together and socialise in the evenings. In England they maybe will go and have a drink together, but this is different. I feel my career is on the right track again.”
