Obafemi Martins Leaves Wolfsburg Amidst Squad Reshuffle

Obafemi Martins: No Longer A Wolfe.

Steve McClaren has made his intentions of bringing Wolfsburg back into European contention known. McClaren has recently come off a championship-winning season with FC Twente, where he brought the club Eredivisie glory for the first time in their history. Now, after the dismissal of Armin Veh, Steve McClaren has been appointed by VfL Wolfsburg to take the reins and bring glory back to Die Wolfe.

McClaren’s first order of business was to keep hold of star striker Edin Dzeko, who seems to have an endless amount of suitors from all of the top clubs around Europe. It looks inevitable that Bosnian hitman will soon be on his way out of Wolfsburg. Next, McClaren secured the signature of young Danish center-half Simon Kjaer to bolster the club’s squad so that they will be able to push for a European spot next season.

Obafemi Martins, who was back-up to both Grafite and Edin Dzeko, seems to have been pushed even further down the pecking order after McClaren’s takeover of the club. Should Dzeko also leave, the club will be in desperate need of forwards. With only two experienced strikers in Grafite and Dzeko up top now, Die Wolfe will be very light up top without them should there be an injury crisis or a move away from Wolfsburg in the case of Dzeko.

The summer transfer window will stay open until September 1st, and we could yet see quite a few more changes at Die Wolfe. McClaren certainly does seem to be creating a side that will be able to immediately push for a European place and maybe challenge for the title, but all the change could mean a lack of squad harmony. It will be interesting to see how it all pans out for Wolfsburg come the start of the season.
