Matt Doherty – Player Profile
Dublin born Matt Doherty was a signing from the summer transfer window, coming over from Wolverhampton Wanderers in August 2020.
Departing from Irish club, Bohemians, the right-back first joined Wolves in July 2010 and went on to make over 300 appearances for the team.
The 28-year-old entered a couple of loan spells at Hibernian and Bury, experiencing two promotions which saw the team advance from League One to the Premier League. In addition to this, the team also experienced a Europa League qualification in their first season back in the Premier League.
The right-wing defender had seven consecutive Premier League starts, including two victories—a 4-0 triumph against Leeds and a 5-0 victory over Newcastle.
Doherty hit his best playing as a right-sided defender in Antonio Conte’s 3-4-4 system last season. However, he was cruelly cut short due to a knee injury in Spurs v Aston Villa in April. Nevertheless, he appeared in 26 matches in 2021/22, increasing his total to 55 for Spurs.
