Former Striker Disappointed About His Time At Turf Moor
Former Clarets striker Nahki Wells says his lack of a Premier League opportunity at Turf Moor ‘burns him deep inside’ and that he is determined to return to the top flight. Wells left the Clarets last month to sign for Bristol City believes the Robins, who sit seventh in the Sky Bet Championship have the ability to secure promotion.
The Bermuda international, who has spent the last eighteen months on loan at Queens Park Rangers wants to make up for lost time and sees the move to Ashton Gate has the platform for reaching the Premier League. Wells, who spent two and half years at Turf Moor didn’t make a single start for Burnley with his top flight experience totalling nine substitute appearances and just forty-six minutes.
Speaking about his time with Burnley Football Club Nahki Wells said, “I had a Premier League opportunity that I didn’t really get to take, so that’s something that burns me deep inside. However Bristol City have matched my ambition to continue to move forward, not settling with just being in the Sky Bet Championship.
This club wants to get to the Premier League and my ambition is the same. I want to give it everything and this club gives me a very good platform of doing that. To have had a taste of the Premier League, which I’ve always dream to play in. Most players will have that drive and for me it’s something that doesn’t sit too well, that I got a move to the Premier League and I wasn’t really able to stamp my authority and show everyone what I can do.
To not be able to score a Premier League goal still sits in the back of my head, we all have personal attributes but I’m always hungry to score goals. I tick that box in what the club needed and I’am not content with just settling and being a good Championship player. I want to keep striving to get back to the Premier League and the ambitions of the club are equally aligned with that.”
