Max Kilman has told Wolves’ official website that Bruno Lage urged Wolves to maintain their bravery at half-time against Leicester.
Wolves went in at half-time behind, due to a goal by evergreen striker Jamie Vardy.
However, Lage was keen to ensure that his side did not lose their confidence or belief.
Lage’s words seemed to have the desired impact, as Wolves were much improved after the break and Leicester were hanging on by the end.
Kilman said, when asked what Lage told Wolves players at half-time: “To be brave and play with the confidence he knows we have and to believe in ourselves.
“To be fair we did show that, we just didn’t put the chances in.”
Kilman had a late opportunity and referenced that when he said: “I thought I did OK to get in there, but I should have scored.
“Every time I wear the shirt, I want to do my best.”
Despite that late miss, Kilman was arguably Wolves’ outstanding player on the day.
He certainly got a lot of love from the fans on Twitter for his performance.
Lage has inspired improved performances out of his side in the second half of their last two games.
That is a good sign in terms of him being able to provoke a response, but it’s concerning that the starts have been slow against Leicester and Celta Vigo.
