Wolverhampton Wanderers have secured their promotion in the Premier League after six seasons. The West Midlands club has dominated the Championship as they have easily been head and shoulders above every team in the division, proven by the fact that they have been top of the table since mid-November.
A lot of credit for such performance must go to their inspiring manager Nuno Espirito Santo. The former Porto manager has made this team into a formidable side. Santo brought in his former player Ruben Neves from Porto at a club record fee of £15.8million. Such a move showed intent on the part of the board and manager and what a signing he has turned out to be as he has been instrumental for the Wolves this season.
After such performances, one can be sure that the bigger clubs would have had Ruben Neves on their radar but a recent interview must be a sigh of relief for Wolves fans as Neves claimed that he wants to stay at the club. He said-”Honestly, I love to play here. I love the boys and I love the fans. I am really happy here.”
Such words would be music to a Wolves’ fan ears as they would have dreaded to see their star man leave after just one season. He further went on to add-”Of course, it is my first season in the Premier League. It is the place that Wolves deserve. The fans deserve it as well.I have it all to stay, but in football, we never know. Yes, I would like to stay.When I came here, I came to improve myself and help the club.”
“Fortunately, I have improved myself this year in a really good league so I am happy to be here. I love the club and I love the fans. I am happy to be here and fortunately, we are in the Premier League and that’s the most important thing”- he was quoted saying at EFL awards.
It is great to see a player coming out and clearing all speculations about his future. Wolves have been smart in the transfer market as they got quite a few players on loan who helped them to regain promotion. They are expected to sign some of them on a permanent basis and keeping their main man Neves, will surely give them a huge boost in the Premier League next season as they try to become a regular top-flight club.
