Wolves fans react on Twitter to historic win over Manchester City

Wolves fans have reacted to their club’s historic capture of the Premier League Asia Trophy cup.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s pack and pups beat Manchester City in the final yesterday.

The 90-minute fight ended 0-0 with Wolves winning the immediate penalty shoot-out 3-2.

Every one of Nuno’s champions were fundamental to the victory, but Rui Patricio was the MVP for his bravery in goal.

The Premier League Asia Trophy marked Wolves’ first venture to China, and it also marked the club’s first trophy on the homeland soil of owners Fosun.

Some of the pack said Fosun must have been “buzzing,” meanwhile others jested that Wolves should already be given the 19/20 Premier League cup.


Others were wondering when the club would hold a bus parade in Wolverhampton, but a number of fans were more bothered about the club announcing the rumoured transfer of Ruben Dias (Express & Star).

However, Rui Patricio received special praise as he was treated like a king online for his gutsy heroics in goal.

The young pup Sanderson was also commended for his contribution after replacing Adama Traore at RWB.

Wolves have already journeyed back to England where they will face the Crusaders on July 25 at Molineux in the second qualifying round of the Europa League.
