Wolves youngster Hugo Bueno has revealed Jonny Castro Otto played a big part in helping him settle at the club.
Bueno is now a fully fledged member of the first-team squad, after breaking through last month.
Bueno got his chance when Rayan Ait-Nouri was ill for the game against Crystal Palace. That allowed Bueno to make his full debut, and he really impressed at Selhurst Park.
And since that game, Bueno has started every game for Wolves in the Premier League.
He has wowed fans with his fearlessness and heart, and the left-back position is his to lose at the moment.
Bueno has worked extremely hard to get to where he is, after joining the club in 2019 from Arosa.
Interestingly, Bueno says he didn’t live far away from Jonny, and has credited his fellow countryman with helping him settle at Wolves. He adds it’s ‘crazy’ the pair are now in the same club.
He said (via Express & Star): “I am very close to Jonny because we are from the same area in Spain.
“We are both from Vigo and lived 15 minutes away from each other. It’s crazy, but it’s good.
“Every day I always learn something new, so it’s really good to have these kind of players in your position.
“It’s much easier to have this kind of team-mate next to you. Everything has been good so far.”
Jonny deserves credit for helping Hugo Bueno at Wolves, with full-back looking like a top talent
It is interesting to hear that Bueno and Jonny used to live very close to each other in Spain.
Clearly there is a close relationship there, and £15 million signing Jonny deserves credit for helping young Bueno settle in at Wolves and aid his transition to the first-team.
Wolves are now benefiting massively from Bueno having felt so comfortable around the place.
His performances so far have been very impressive, and he looks to be a top prospect.
He looks like he could actually become a great long-term replacement for his friend Jonny.
Jonny was once a top full-back for Wanderers, but his previous injuries look to have sadly caught up with him in recent times.
Unless he turns things around soon, Wolves may feel a replacement is needed. But Bueno could well be that player.
