Fans will be back at Molineux this season after the 2020/21 campaign was spent largely behind closed doors.

Leander Dendoncker has told the club website that rivals in the Premier League have told him how hard it is to play against Wolves on their own patch.

The first league game with supporters back this term will see Nuno Espirito Santo return with Tottenham.

“When I speak to friends who play in the Premier League, they always say it’s tough to come and play here at the Molineux and play against Wolves, in general,” he said. “We’re always really well organised and just a good team.

“It’s not a secret anymore. The first two seasons in the Premier League were amazing and people know we can be a really good team, so it’s up to us to try and find that new level again under a new manager.


“It does feel like a new era. It’s up to us to create a new journey so we can write history again with this club. [Having fans back] is massive for us. That may be one of the reasons why we performed less good (last season).

“In the first two seasons, every home game was very hard for the away team which came to play here, mainly because of the fans. They play a massive role in the success that we’ve had.”

A full Molineux should add another dimension to Wolves’ performances, especially if Lage can get them on the front foot in games.

Hopefully that’s one of the reasons this season is different to the last and Wolves can finish higher up the table.

It’s fair to say the returning fans would be more content if there were a couple of new faces between now and the end of the transfer window.
