Wolverhampton Wanderers wing-back Nelson Semedo is finally beginning to get into his stride.

The Portugal international initially struggled to adapt to Premier League life.

There were some fairly shaky performances from the 27-year-old early doors.

His showing against Aston Villa, which culminated in him giving away an injury-time penalty was perhaps the lowest point for the player.

But 2021 has been much better for Semedo, and the last few games in particular have seen him really shine.

 

He’s been a big part of the club’s recent mini-renaissance, and is looking good linking up with Pedro Neto, who has switched wings in recent games.

It seems Semedo is very much enjoying life in the Black Country, and the star has actually revealed how taken aback he was by the positive state of the club upon joining.

In an interview with The Telegraph, he said: “It’s a very good experience and a club with good ambitions and players.

“Honestly, Wolves have surprised me with their organisation, the club structure and how the team is – I already knew the team had good players but it is better than I imagined.”

Semedo set for strong finish

Semedo’s form has certainly been improving over the past few weeks.

He has definitely got a much better understanding of English football now, and is looking more solid defensively and ironing out those positional errors.

The star – who has featured in all but one Premier League game since his arrival – looks all set to finish 2020/21 strongly, and it would be quite a surprise if a first goal did not arrive fairly soon given some of the positions he’s been taking up.
