Bruno Lage had 20-minute conversation with Nelson Semedo during Wolves training

Bruno Lage reportedly spoke to Nelson Semedo for around 20 minutes while a training drill was in session.

The Wolves players continue to gear up for the 2022/23 season in the blistering heat in Alicante.

The player have spent a week doing intense training, and now the games will commence.

Wanderers are taking on Deportivo Alaves at 6pm tonight, and then there’s games against Levante, Besiktas and Villarreal B.

The Express & Star were invited to another training session this week, and they noted how Lage never switches off.

He did not take that particular session, leaving his coaches to put the players through their paces.

But Lage was watching, and he had a tactical meeting with Semedo, who had come to watch.

The manager spoke with Semedo for upwards of 20 minutes. It is suggested by the Express & Star that Lage was giving him advice ‘as he began acting out positional and tactical instructions’.

Semedo currently can’t join in with the rest of his teammates as he works his way back to full fitness after surgery on a torn hamstring.

The star is still doing individual sessions, and is battling to be fit to face Leeds United in the first game of 2022/23.

Semedo is said to have welcomed the advice from Lage.

Lage clearly sees Semedo as integral for Wolves

It is clear at this point that Lage rates Semedo really highly.

When he wasn’t injured last season he used him at pretty much every turn, and Semedo did have a really good campaign.

During his time at Benfica, Lage had his full-backs playing high and wide, and that really helped his side to play some fantastic attacking football, which ultimately led to a league title.

We saw last term how high Semedo and Rayan Ait-Nouri played at times.

It is a position Lage sees as very important, and it’s little wonder he wanted to involve £29 million man Semedo at least in some way.

Hopefully, we will be seeing the former Barcelona man kick on again next season, after a solid second term at Molineux.
