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.
That was just meant to be. In Asia as well. Bet Fosun are buzzing.
