Leicester striker Wood has "no regrets" over Millwall snub

CHRIS Wood insists he has "no regrets" over his decision to join Leicester City instead of Millwall in January – despite the Lions' run to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.

Wood scored 11 goals in just 19 appearances during a loan spell at The Den earlier this season but turned down the chance to make the move permanent after West Brom accepted a club-record bid.

The 21-year-old has netted nine times since joining the Foxes, who will be desperate to arrest a run of five games without a win when Millwall travel to the King Power Stadium on Friday.

The Lions will face Wigan at Wembley on April 13 but Wood says he does not care about missing out on the chance to play at the national stadium.

"It doesn't bother me," he told Foxes Player. "I think I made the right decision in coming here. Being at Leicester has improved my game so I have no regrets.

"Millwall are a very good team and when I was down there they were playing very well, and they've carried that on throughout the season.

"It's going to be a tough game for us, they'll come to try and frustrate us, but we need to make sure we stick to our guns and do the job right."

    Translation: I'm just a money grabbing w***** and there was no bonus for doing well in the cup on the table during contract talks so I couldn't give a s*** because my wallet is still bulging.

    Chris Wood didn't say anything to news at den. this sites headlines are all way's twisted and want to encourage more negative arguments from wall fans, this site does more damage then good. p*** poor/ school playground journalism all the time with constant spelling mistakes. which takes simple answers out of context to make a twist statement.

    this artical has come from this on LCFC site
    http://www.lcfc.com/news/article/270313-wood-we-have-belief-736729.aspx

      i'd disagree there mate - you're referring to the wrong article on the LCFC site. This article directly says it's the Foxes Player (video) interview that he's been quoted from, not the text article that you're referring to. Also, if you don't like this site, don't come here. Word would get round Wall fans anyway, it always does. This site just provides a centralised forum for it.

      titchone, NewsAtDen is essentially a one-man operation. Not just in terms of chasing stories, going to all the games and writing the content, but the technical/business side of things too. If I could afford a proof reader, trust me I would hire one. Nobody can proof read their own articles effectively. The site is run on a shoe-string budget, if that, so please excuse the odd spelling mistake. Perhaps we should charge people to read the site and then we could hire more staff?

      As has been pointed out, Wood said this in a video interview, which is clearly stated.

        I hope we humiliate them , not bothered about Mr Wood after all it was he who lied on Lions player ..... Kane is a good lad who knows one day they could be both back at the Den after Leicester and Spurs have dumped them ...... Come on you Lions 2 - 0 win

        Don't listen to that d******* (@titchone) Aldo. We know you do it for the love mate.

        If you've got people, like me, that check your site religiously, daily from Australia- then you must be doing something alright.

        What a w***** this bloke is. F**k the haters!!!!!!!!

    Chris wood did not have to be so disrespectful to millwall and the fans as seemed to enjoy his spell here and would have learnt from KJ and first team football.
    But I don't think he could have said much else considering he is so recently at leicester and interviewing for their site. He could hardly say that he has made a mistake going to leicester and that Pearson is a knob, as we all know.

    Lets just hope that we show him and muggy leicester why they shouldn't mug us off.

    spelling mistake was not the key point of what i said

    it's the crude way posts a jumbled together from other content to be made to look like alex has been standing there in the interviews holding the microphone.

    this site should be clearly marked as a fan site and state some content might be pure b*******.

    also why is there no post of Billy Neil news http://www.millwallfc.co.uk/news/article/we-salute-you-731824.aspx some thing positive and worth while highlighting.

      NewsAtDen is not a fan site and content is never, ever, pure b*******. Our track record on transfer stories says it all. And 95% of the time, I am standing there holding the microphone. I think you have badly misjudged the site.

      I don't know Alex Aldridge, but to be fair, I think he's doing an amazing job.

      I rarely use the official club site any more - News at Den's much quicker with Millwall updates and more comprehensive (plus a lot more trustworthy than the club's official stance on news).

    I'd like to say I could rise above such things, but Leicester's one of the results I've started looking out for (along with West Ham, Charlton, Palace, etc) . Whatever happens at the top this season, I just hope this bloke and his club stays in the Championship.

    Titchone, don't comment on spelling mistakes when you spell 'always' .........'all way's ', I think that is the Mandarin spell check you are using mate 😉 Just kidding fella and welcome to the site!
    As for Wood, is it any wonder he says this when he has just signed for another club, I don't find it disrespectful just run-of-mill language that gets dished out when a player signs from another club. Still can't wait for Friday night when we keep both him and Kane off the scoresheet and Big Dan scores our winner!!!!!

    As colin66 says "chris wood who's he" we've got shittu & chaplow, at the moment anyway! coz they ain't signed on the dotted line yet, & if they don't and get a better deal elsewhere they will be money grabbing C***S as well, that's football & that's life my blue blooded brothers.

    further to that without mr woods goals we would be firmly in the s***..

    Wood you are simply one of the best finishers of a football I have ever seen, you are also a complete and utter mug. You have just proved to every wall fan what being a modern footballer is all about.

    He is hardly going to turn round and say, " I regret coming here I should have signed for Millwall " all these negative posts are out of order if you ask me. Wood is a young international goal scorer (very hard to find) who came to us to get first team football and to try put himself in the frame for 1st team football at west brom OR attract attention from a team looking for promotion or premier league survival. He did that by scoring 11 goals for us ( a few screamers in there too ) and helping us climb the table and ultimately help us get enough points to survive (if we do). People need to appreciate what he did as without him and his goals i dread to think what position we would be in. We struggle to score goals, and have a disgraceful home record and in my opinion Danny shittu saying " that's what we do " and us having a good cup run has coverd up lately what has been a poor few months in terms of performance and results, and the reason for this poor run is because we lost Chris wood. So I think we should be a little bit more greatful than we have been, after all he isn't a Millwall fan so has no reason really to pick us over anyone else.

      I think you are bang on there 82.
      If Kenny was to announce in the summer that he has managed to sign Wood on a permanent deal I think we would all be pretty chuffed.
      It was not all that long ago that Danny Shitu was getting a slagging when he defected to QPR (money grabbing bas---d, etc etc) and now he is our hero.
      Footballers have a short career and have to make decisions that will maximise their time in the game.
      Wood is a youngster who would have been strongly advised by his agents and parents as to which direction to take and remember he is a midland based lad.
      I would just like to thank him for what he did for us while he was here and hope he's firing blanks on Friday.

    Whatever the result is on Friday so be it.
    Leicester are not going up and he and his manager will then be on a downward spiral. Both will end up with other clubs.
    Wood-You were good for Millwall but Millwall supporters have very long memories and take no prisoners.
    You went there for 'glory'. Good luck finding it in the midlands.
    We don't a s*** about you anymore. Got it ?

    I bet Nugent poses the greater threat whilst we are all t****** off over Kane and Wood, quite frankly I hope that is the last time I type out those two names. Done well for us, but they play for Leicester now, so I hope they don't score another goal all season
