Former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jody Craddock believes that he could have helped the club avoid relegation from the Championship last season.

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Jody Craddock believes that he could have improved the club's fortunes last season.

Craddock failed to make a league appearance last year as Wolves were relegated to League One, and the former Sunderland centre-back has revealed his frustration when he felt that he was in the best shape of his career.

The 37-year-old told the Express & Star: "I love Wolves and was busting a gut to get fit and get involved. I was seriously pleased with how I fared in the fitness tests – I was in better shape than ever in my view.

"I was desperate to be involved, but in the end, I watched all the home games from the stands – and I honestly think I could have changed it. I really do.

"I know it's easy to say that. You can never know now what would have happened, whether injuries might have intervened. But I do feel that I could have given the club something that could have changed how things turned out."

Craddock retired from professional football at the end of last season.
