Dan Bentley and Mario Lemina have both hailed the role the Wolves fans have played this season at Molineux, describing the support as ‘incredible’.
Wanderers will be playing Premier League football again next season.
In the end, it was a relatively comfortable end to the season, with Wolves securing safety with three games to spare.
Given the disarray earlier this season, that will have come as a surprise to many.
There are several reasons why Wolves were able to turn things around though.
The biggest reason was that Wolves brought in a top-class manager in Julen Lopetegui, who has overseen a complete change at Molineux.
He made the players fitter, and added the right characters and profiles to the dressing room in January.
Lopetegui’s focus on bringing leaders to Molineux led them to sign Bentley and Lemina. And both players are in agreement about one thing that’s been brilliant since they arrived.
Bentley said (via Wolves official): “They’ve been incredible with me over the last two games. I saw sitting on the bench for the last couple of months as well and you can see it, you can take in the atmosphere a little bit more, and they’ve been magnificent.
Lemina added: “They are incredible, honestly. Every game that I’ve been here at home was amazing. They really support us, they push us really, really hard every game. I’m so thankful we had these supporters, I swear, they’re amazing.”
Wolves fans have certainly played their part this season.
There were testing times in the early parts of the campaign under Bruno Lage.
The football was awful and the team was not picking up results.
There was a lot of doom and gloom, but there was always support.
And obviously since Lopetegui came in, the supporters have been right behind the Spaniard and the players.
Wolves fans more than played their part this season, as Bentley and Lemina hail Molineux faithful
It is nice to hear this from Bentley and Lemina, two players who only came to the club in January.
They have clearly been very struck by the Molineux atmosphere, and believe the fans have been key in helping the team.
Wanderers fans have had to be very patient indeed this season.
Some of what was being served up in the early parts of the season was very tough to watch and support.
But by and large fans have stuck by the team, and in the second half of the season there has been a clear response from the players.
You need only look at the results at Molineux in 2023, to know fans played their part.
