Wolverhampton Wanderers chairman Jeff Shi has made a rather big claim regarding two young Molineux stars.

The club are doing an Ask Wolves Q&A series, and have invited questions from fans for senior club officials Scott Sellars, Matt Wild, Russell Jones, Vinny Clark and Shi.

It will be released in four parts, and is to mark the fifth anniversary of Fosun’s takeover.

The first part was released this morning, and there are some interesting takeaways.

At one point the topic of conversation turned to young players, with some fans having expressed concerns about the pressures they face and the impact of that on the team making the top four.

Sellars spoke of the need for having a balance of young and experienced players, before Shi added: “And also if you’re a top talent, it’s not really important about your age.


“If you say like Pedro Neto or Fabio Silva, I think they can get into any team in the Premier League, so it’s not really about age.

“Age is important, but sometimes your peak will happen at an earlier age or when you are very young, so I am not so concerned about it.”

Big claim

It’s nice to hear Shi speaking really positively about some of Wolves’ young players.

He has probably gone a little overboard, but there is no denying the potential of Neto and Silva, especially Neto.

Perhaps he meant they could get into any squad rather than team.
