Former Wolves defender Mo Camara has opened a new wine bar in the city where he became a cult hero.

His wine and jazz bar, Chill, opened its doors with a special VIP launch event on Friday.

It is now open to the public offering coffee and lunch during the day and wine and cocktails in the evening.

Camara was inspired to open the bar in High Street, Tettenhall, after moving to the historic village two years ago.

He said: "My partner Tina and I we were wanting to go out in the evenings. We were always going to Birmingham but Tettenhall is so lovely and the people are so nice that we wanted to do something here.

"From the opening night we have had great feedback and people had a really good time.

"We are looking to have live bands one or two times a month depending on how that goes down."

Camara, aged 42, was a popular figure during his three seasons at Molineux having signed for £100,000 in 2000.

The Guinean full-back was liked for his forward runs and tenacity but lost his place in the team during the 2002-03 promotion season.

He went on to play for Celtic, Burnley and Derby County in a career spanning 17 years.

After hanging up his boots he became an international scout for Sunderland in 2010 and then was a European scout for Derby Country from 2014.

For the past nine months he has been a part-time scout for Manchester United's academy.

Camara still has fond memories from his time at Wolves.

He added: "The first two years there were absolutely great. Colin Lee brought me in and it was absolutely brilliant.

"I always remember the fans because they were absolutely great with me. It is a time I will never forget in my life."
