Since 2020, football fans have watched as Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s Wrexham made their way back to the big leagues. While the team is one of the oldest in the world, they seemed to hit a slouch until the actor duo acquired ownership back in 2021. Now, with the team making tremendous progress and getting ahead, one of the team’s first additions since the acquisition, Paul Mullin opened up about the only moment that made him question his decision to join the Red Dragons.

Although he now knows that it was an opportunity of a lifetime, the 29-year-old revealed the moment in his autobiography, My Wrexham Story.

Recently, Wrexham’s forward, Paul Mullin, opened up about his decision to join Ryan Reynolds football club. While Mullin seemed to be content with his decision from what was said in his autobiography, My Wrexham Story, he also revealed the “one and only time” that he questioned whether he had made the right choice. He went on to say that it had happened when the team had lost the FA trophy.

Mullin also said that he felt like “an entire season’s work had just disappeared” and that everyone’s efforts were “down the drain.” That was the only time he ever wondered, “Should I have signed here? Was it really worth it?” Thankfully, his feelings of sadness were pushed aside when Wrexham were promoted to life in League Two. Now, the player has other things to focus on like winning matches and staying in shape.

His post-match social media share comes as no surprise as he routinely posts about his team, investments, and even co-owner Rob McElhenney. While not all his posts are him sharing wins, sometimes the actor even opens up about certain difficulties he and his wife can face. With Reynolds already excited about Wrexham’s performance, the next match should be even more exciting.
