Willian Jose has given an interview to Noticias de Gipuzkoa in the Basque region where he touched on his time at Wolves.

Jose spent the second half of last season on loan at Molineux under Nuno Espirito Santo.

He didn’t come in under ideal circumstances; charged with filling in for Raul Jimenez in a tired team who didn’t make many chances.

But Jose has admitted he expected his time in England to go better and that he expected to play more under Nuno.

“It has been a very good experience for me. I wanted to go out, I needed to go out, I needed a change and it has been very good for me. Of course things did not go as expected, but I am very happy,” said Jose of his Wolves loan.

“The Premier League is the best competition in the world, very competitive, with a lot of strength and speed. At Wolverhampton there were very important players and that also plays a part.

“I went with the expectation of doing a good job of a high quality, but I could not. I came being aware of how difficult it was to play in the Premier League It is a very difficult competition. Also, it was very cold.


“In San Sebastián it is very cold, but in England much more. Despite everything, it has been a very good experience. I finished the season very well, I didn’t finish it playing, but I was happy.

“Of course I expected to play a little more, but football is like that.”

What next for Jose?

He made it clear elsewhere in the interview that he doesn’t want to play for parent club Real Sociedad next season.

Jose scored just one goal in 17 games for Wolves. That record is hardly going to convince anybody at Molineux to take a punt on buying him.

Surely Wolves have moved on. Of course Nuno was the man who brought Jose in and he’s left now too.

It would be interesting to see if he could do any better in England with a full pre-season behind him, but it’s unlikely that’ll be at Wolves.
