Berra vows to win over critics

15 September 2012 01:23
Wolves defender Christophe Berra insists the fans had a right to boo him at the start of the season but he has vowed to win them around. Berra was targeted by some supporters after expressing his wish to move to another club in the summer. No transfer materialised but the 27-year-old has managed to win his place back in the team, and now he has insisted he will give his all during the final season of his contract. Berra told the club's website: "I know there was criticism from fans and I understand people will always read into things and have their opinions. "Fans have got the right to have those opinions and express them whether they are watching Wolves, Manchester United or anyone else. "I think anyone who knows me would know I always show a good attitude and will continue to do that. "I just want to play games and be involved. This is my last year and I've got 10 months or so left and when I'm out on the pitch I will give 110% whatever the situation. "I want to play as well as I can and give my all and hopefully I can carry on playing for Wolves and carry on playing for Scotland." Berra should be in the starting line-up against Leicester at Molineux tomorrow and he is expecting a hard-fought game. He added: "Leicester have spent a lot of money and must be among the favourites to go up. "They will be coming to our place in confident mood and we have to make sure we go out there and put a good performance in and get the three points." Wolves should have a trio of players back in contention after recent injuries: full-back Kevin Foley, Togolese winger Razak Boukari and Icelandic striker Bjorn Sigurdarson. The Foxes have yet to win away this season while Wolves, though they only have four points out of four games, are unbeaten in their two home matches. Leicester boss Nigel Pearson, whose side have taken six points, is expecting a hard physical encounter but has no injury concerns after the international break. He told the club's website: "It's a tough fixture for us, but we're confident and the spirit amongst the players is very good. "I expect the match to be a pretty physical and fast contest, so we have to be ready for that, but our players are in good spirits and it's important we go there confident, but clear in our minds that we have a very difficult job to do there."
