Bruno Lage has admitted he prefers to work with a bigger squad than the one he currently has at Wolves.
Ahead of the trip to face Watford, Lage conducted his first press conference since the end of the summer transfer window.
Lage said he would rather be working with 21 outfield players than 18, but was optimistic about what he can do with the squad he has now.
The Express and Star’s Liam Keen quoted Lage as saying:
It is that very last word which caught the attention of many Wolves fans on Twitter.
‘Solutions’ was a favourite phrase of Lage’s predecessor Nuno Espirito Santo.
That’s why it seems to have grabbed the attention of some Wolves supporters online.
Lage offered other updates at the briefing, such as confirming Raul Jimenez is able to play, but none garnered as much online reaction as what he said here.
Here’s how the comments went down as Lage prepares to try and get his first Premier League win, at the fourth time of asking:
