Bruno Lage identifies three areas Wolves need to improve

Bruno Lage has spoken about where he wants his Wolves side to improve in attack.

In an interview on Sky Sports Soccer Saturday aired at 12.52pm on Sky Sports News, Lage outlined his vision.

Wolves have just two goals from five Premier League games so far and Lage was asked about that.

“We can improve on three things that are important,” said Lage. “The first is the way we play, so trying to play in a different way to try and create more chances.

“That can help the players. The other is how to arrive in the positions in the box to have more solutions when the guys cross it. The movements, where I can be to score goals.

“Also the ability for the players to create their own chances. We have Raul [Jimenez] and Pedro [Neto] with a good average of goals but next best is Ruben [Neves].

“So we need to improve and put pressure on them.”

So Lage wants to create more chances with his style of play, while also getting players in the right position to score and encouraging the players to take ownership of the responsibility to make things happen.

Perhaps that will mean there’s a shakeup of his lineup, or maybe he’s hoping that things will improve as players gain more rhythm in terms of playing alongside each other.

Lage was brought in to move Wolves towards a more expansive style of play.

The chance creation has largely been there but the quality in front of goal hasn’t – and that needs to change quickly.
