Wolves loanee Francisco Trincao has told the club website how much he rates new teammate Pedro Neto.

Trincao and Neto both played for SC Vianense as kids, and then SC Braga as teenagers.

Neto said last month how excited he was by Trincao’s arrival, as well as sharing what Wolves fans can expect from him.

The supporters got their first glimpse of him at Molineux on Saturday, when he was one of the brightest performers in the 1-0 loss against Celta Vigo.

“We’ve played a lot of years together and played together at Braga in Portugal,” said Trincao of Neto.

“He’s a good friend of mine and a really good player, and I hope to play with him this season too, to score many goals, and assist, creating a good relationship.”


He also commented on his relationship with new manager Bruno Lage, saying: “It’s a good relationship.

“We are Portuguese, so it’s good to communicate, but it’s professional. We are here to play, to work, that’s it.”

Trincao needs to influence games

What we’ve seen so far from Trincao is that he’s a skillful player but perhaps his end-product needs work.

This season, he needs to go from being an exciting player to being an efficient and influential one as well.

Wolves need another source of goals and assists. Trincao has the quality to provide that, and of course his link-up with Neto could be productive.
