Nahki Wells has paid tribute to manager David Wagner, the man he believes has “revitalised” his footballing career.

The striker, who was voted Players’ Player and Hargreaves Memorial Player of the Year on Sunday night as well as picking up the Golden Boot award for his 18 goals this season, hailed the impact his manager has had on his all-round game as well as his goal tally.

And the Bermudian, who revealed his favourite strike of the season came at Elland Road in the 4-1 thumping of Leeds United, is rising to the challenge of being the team’s main man.

“I can’t thank him enough because I genuinely believe he has revitalised my career,” said Wells of Wagner, who has handed the striker 31 appearances since taking over in November.

“He’s come in and told me ‘there is a lot more I can get from you’.

“I believed him and he has brought it out of me so credit to him, the staff, the players, and the chairman who has brought me in.

“I’ve only ever won the Golden Boot award since being in England. Personally, that’s an important award as a striker but to win the two awards off players and fans means so much because it means I’ve come on beyond just goals, in terms of importance to the team, to show the character to lead and to be the one to rely on for goals as well.

“I think it will only help me to grow as a player.”

But after a standout season in 2015/16, Wells is setting his sights even higher next term - with promotion the ultimate goal.

He added: “As always I want to get better every season. As a player I think I’ve improved every year, moved up as an individual or through the team statistics, so next year I want to get promoted.

“I want to move the club forward. I don’t want to set the bar too high but the sky’s the limit I guess.

“If you don’t reach for those goals you won’t get them, so we’re going into next season fully focused, hopefully with a bigger squad and a full pre-season under this manager.”
