Wolverhampton Wanderers forward Hwang Hee-chan has suggested Bruno Lage is set to use him mostly in a left-wing position.

The 25-year-old has made a couple of appearances now for Wolves following his loan move from RB Leipzig.

He has twice come on as a substitute thus far.

He managed to grab a debut goal against Watford, and was then lively in the defeat to Brentford.

Despite having not been around for very long, some fans have enjoyed what they’ve seen from the South Korean.

With Wolves struggling to score goals, he might soon start starting.

It will be interesting to see where Hwang will play thought given the plethora of attacking options at Bruno Lage’s disposal.

The player has said in an interview with Sky Sports that a wide left role could be his regular position.


He said: “I think Bruno Lage mainly wants me to play as a left-winger.

“However, he is trying to give me lots of freedom in terms of position, allowing me to go to centre-forward or the wings, playing in whatever position that I need to be.”

Hwang to compete with Trincao?

It is interesting to hear Hwang say Lage wants him mainly on the left-wing.

Potentially, that puts him in competition with Trincao for minutes.

Realistically, Adama Traore’s place in the starting XI is pretty assured given the enormous threat he carries.

And Raul Jimenez is probably going to play most of the games as the central striker.

That leaves Trincao perhaps a little vulnerable to losing his starting berth.
