Midfielder Vitinha is still very much getting to grips with life at Wolves.

The 20-year-old joined the club in the summer on a season-long loan from FC Porto, but is yet to really make his mark.

So far, he’s made 10 appearances in all competitions for the club, including three starts.

Vitinha has shown glimpses of his talent, but like Fabio Silva, is clearly still trying to adapt to a new country and a new league.

The player though, has described his move to the Black Country as ‘perfect’, but the Portugal U21 star does have one big regret so far.

Speaking to the club’s official website, he said: “I just can’t imagine what it would be like because I’ve never experienced Molineux with the fans, that’s the biggest shame.

“I really want to see them at Molineux and hear how it sounds because a lot of people have told me great things about the atmosphere.”

Whereas some stadiums in the country were briefly allowed a small number of fans back in towards the end of 2020, games at Molineux have remained behind closed doors since last March.

Whereas some sides have relished playing without supporters present, like Southampton, Everton and Aston Villa, Wolves have struggled.

It might be some time before fans can return to Molineux, and hopefully when everybody’s back, the team will respond in the right way, and the likes of Vitinha and Silva can feel the love and support.
