Ebanks-Blake to fulfill Anfield ambition
The 23-year-old marksman is a lifelong Liverpool fan, and has never set foot in Anfield having vowed never to go inside the stadium until the day he was able to play there. “As a Liverpool fan the biggest treat in being in the Premier League will be to play against them for Wolves," he told the Birmingham Mail.
“I have never been to Anfield. I told myself a long time ago that the first time I would go there would not be until I play there. Hopefully I will get my chance to do that next season. “It was just something I set as a target for myself as a youngster. I have never been to watch Liverpool at Anfield even though they are my team and I have had lots of chances over the years.
“I lived in Manchester for years and have seen them play at Old Trafford and really Anfield was on my doorstep. “But I said from a very young age that my first trip there would be as a player. That has always been my special dream – the ultimate prize – and I can’t wait to get the opportunity now.
“For all of us it is a massive dream come true. But it is also nothing short of what we deserve.
“We have worked hard all season and, once we get these last couple of games out of the way, we can enjoy it.” NEWS: Ebanks-Blake clinches Wolves promotion NEWS: Sylvan scoops Football League Awards double
