Wolves hungry for more Portuguese

in Sport · 03-08-2017 14:37:00 · 0 Comments

Diogo Jota has become the latest Portuguese player to sign for English second-tier side Wolverhampton Wanderers, joining on a season-long loan from Atletico Madrid.

Jota becomes the sixth Portuguese player at Molineux as Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, continues to exert his influence.
Roderick Miranda, Rúben Neves and Rúben Vinagre have also signed for Wolves this summer, joining compatriots Hélder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro.
Another addition to the squad this season is Willy
Boly, the French central defender on-loan from FC Porto.
Another new member of the mainly Portuguese backroom staff is rehabilitation coach, João Lapa, who was born in Tavira and more recently worked at SC Olhanense.
Great things are expected of former FC Porto boss Nuno Espírito Santo who took charge at the Midlands club two months ago.
During his managerial career, that started at Rio Ave, the 43 year-old former goalkeeper has taken charge of 190 games, winning a grand total of ninety-one, giving him a win percentage of 47.9 percent - higher than any Wolves manager in the past fifty years.
A sell-out crowd for Saturday’s home game against Middlesbrough could see Molineux have its biggest crowd since 1981.
