Bruno Lage has insisted Wolverhampton Wanderers need to show some bite going forwards.

So far, there has been a lot to like about Wolves under the new manager.

The team is having no issues creating chances, and the defenders have done a fairly good job too.

There is definitely a lot of potential for this side under this head coach.

The fans have really taken to the 45-year-old and his style – not just on the pitch, but off it too.

So far, Lage has come across as a very measured individual, who cares deeply about his craft.

He seems extremely professional, and his intensity has been lapped up.

While Lage is happy with what he’s seen from his players in response to his methods, he believes they need to be showing some steel going forwards.

He said (via Express & Star): “There’s a good environment here. I have only good things to say about these guys. Competitive, good guys.

“But I said to them ‘Boys, when you play the other teams, they need to feel we are not nice guys’. They need to feel you are a hard team to beat. They need to feel it.

“When you have the ball, try to find the way to score goals. When you lose the ball, the other guys need to feel you are a hard team to play against.”

The comments come after Fabio Silva recently said that he was expecting to have teams fearing coming to Molineux again.

A good message from Lage

There’s been plenty of pretty football so far from Wolves which has been great and refreshing.

But it has yielded only one win so far, despite Wolves deserving more.

Arguably Wolves do need to show more bite and ‘nastiness’ going forwards to complement the brilliant attacking football.

There’s every chance the players will bring this to the table the longer they are subjected to Lage’s intensity.
