Kevin Doyle believes that Ståle Solbakken is the most attack minded manager he has ever worked for.
The Republic of Ireland striker has worked under Steve Coppell at Reading, Mick McCarthy at Wolves and Steve Staunton and Giovanni Trapattoni at international level in the past, but none of which have had as much emphasis on attack as the new Wolves gaffer Solbakken according to the 29-year-old.
The strikers comments come after criticism of Solbakken’s tactics following the draw with Bolton in mid-week.
After fighting back from a goal down thanks to two goals from Doyle. Wolves never really got going in the second half and eventually succumbed to a last minute equaliser.
Doyle and strike partner Sylvan Ebanks-Blake were both substituted for Richard Stearman and Bjorn Sigurdarson. Whilst Dave Edwards replaced Jermaine Pennant as Solbakken desperately tried to soak up the Bolton pressure.
But Doyle doesn’t believe this is an indication of negative tactics and praised the new bosses attacking philosophy.
“When we`re playing well, we play some good stuff and that`s what happened in the first half against Bolton,” said Doyle to the Express & Star.
He added: “This manager probably emphasises it more than any other manager I`ve played under about how he wants us to go forwards and play football, not just about how we defend.
“It`s exciting to hear these new ideas, and it`s the most I`ve heard of that sort of thing in my career, so we need to translate that onto the pitch.
