Max Kilman has insisted Bruno Lage’s arrival at Wolves has uplifted the squad.

Lage has already become a popular figure with supporters for the style he is trying to implement.

Barring the 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest, results have not been great so far.

But it will take time for the players to get used to new methods and new tactics.

There are definitely positive signs from what we have seen so far.

Seeing Wolves have more of the ball and fashioning considerably more chance these days is certainly most welcome.

Wolves could be a difficult watch under Nuno Espirito Santo.

It seems Lage has definitely made an impression on his players.

Kilman, who has been terrific so far in 2021/22, is the latest Molineux star to sing the 45-year-old’s praises.


He said: “He’s been brilliant since he came to the club. It’s been hard to adapt to the new system and how he wants us to play.

“But the energy and enthusiasm he’s brought in has really pushed us on and you can see how the whole training ground has been uplifted with the enthusiasm and how we want to play. It’s been very positive so far.

Lage’s impact on Kilman specifically has been pretty impressive.

The 24-year-old seems to be playing with confidence, and seeks to bring the ball out and get Wolves moving up the pitch as a collective.

Wolves will soon come alive

Lage has had a really good impact so far.

Wolves have been unlucky with some of the results they’ve had. There has been genuine potential for Wolves to have once each one so far.

That just could not be said at times last season under Nuno.

If the board back Lage sufficiently, he could well do really good things at the club.

From what he’s shown so far, he does deserve that backing.
