Former Molineux defender Andy Thompson has hailed Hugo Bueno, after the defender put in another fine performance for Wolves.
The Spaniard started again for Wanderers in the 1-1 draw with Fulham on Friday night.
And Bueno really shone, with Sky Sports pundit Jamie Carragher actually naming him as the Player of the Match.
Wolves fans have now come to expect great performances from Bueno.
The youngster has been a revelation since making his first-team debut for the club back in October against Nottingham Forest.
Bueno got his first start days after that, and he has been a regular in the starting XI since.
To have been keeping another top prospect in Rayan Ait-Nouri out of the team speaks volumes as to how well he is doing.
Thompson, a former full-back, has been very impressed with the Spaniard so far.
He said (via Wolves official): “Since he’s come into the side, I think he’s done really well. I think he’s matured as a player already with the performances he’s put in.
“He’s defended really well, he’s attacked well. We saw a couple of glimpses of him going down the left side in the first half and the second half.
“He’s done really well. It seems like things haven’t phased him at all in the way he plays. He was confident, he’s knocked in some good balls, and that’s what you want to see from your full backs.”
Hugo Bueno is mature beyond his years for Wolves and his potential is very exciting
Bueno has been one of the biggest positives in Wolves’ season so far.
It has been remarkable to watch a young player come into the starting XI and play with such confidence and maturity.
If you did not watch Wolves regularly and happened to catch him playing, you would never know this was his breakthrough season.
He never appears fazed, and plays in a very mature manner.
It is exciting to think about how good he could become, especially under a coach like Julen Lopetegui.
