Bruno Lage has hailed his crop of Wolves players for how willing to learn they all are.

The club are now sitting ninth in the Premier League table, after Brighton beat Everton in the Premier League today.

It has been a decent start for Lage at Molineux.

Certainly, he has had a fantastic impact on the Wolves defenders. And we have also seen Wolves play some brilliant football, although not nearly enough.

The players all seem to really like the 45-year-old and the way in which he works.

And it seems the feeling is mutual.

Lage said of the current crop: “This is the most amazing thing here – the players are every time ready to do different things.

“The time we spend in meetings to try to understand games, to try to go with the right strategy. That’s why I’m so happy working with these guys because they are there every day.

“They come every day to training to grow up as a team. That’s what makes me so happy and is why, like I think Ruben said, this is a special place because the people are here, they are working hard to improve the club.”

Several players in the team have significantly improved as a result of being open to Lage’s ideas.

Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss are probably the biggest success stories.

The wing-backs, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Nelson Semedo, have also been great. And Ruben Neves is looking like a superb player.

This team and manager have lots of potential

It seems the players really like the manager and vice versa.

And that is a very healthy place to be, especially when there are so many talented stars and the manager is innovative and hardworking.

Wolves under Lage have potential to be a very good team.

But, as has already been said several times, it can only go so far in its current state.

Lage has been calling publicly for new faces, and it’s on Fosun to supply him so he can do his best work.
