It’s been over 7 years since Derby County competed in the Premier League as the English club was relegated from the top tier league during the 2007-08 season after finishing at the bottom of the league during that season.
Derby County recorded one of the worst Premier League campaigns in the history of the league as they only managed to secure 1 victory in the 2007-08 season and were relegated after only being able to snatch 11 points in 38 matches.
County is currently competing in the English League Championship but Stephen Warnock is hoping that things can change this time around.
Stephen Warnock was signed by Derby County in January of 2015 and even though his debut with the new club was a disastrous one as he received a red card when playing against Reading, the 33 year old left-back wants to recover from that horrendous debut and help push Derby County to back to the Premier League.
Warnock expressed his objective about what he wants to do with Derby County as the defender said: “I wanted to come in and try to get the lads promoted. That’s not saying I think I could do it single-handedly but you want to be part of the team and say you’ve played your part in it.We’ll try our best to get Derby out of this league, one way or another.’’
“There’s no two ways about that and the lads are determined to make it happen.The league is funny, we know that.All we can do is win our games you can’t try to predict what other teams will do.Nobody would have predicted we would have gone on a run like we did.’’
Stephen Warnock has performed in the Premier League a few years ago when he was a player of Liverpool, Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa, the experienced wants to make a return to the top tier English League.
