New Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Willian Jose has given his first interview with the club following his loan move from Real Sociedad.
The Brazilian completed his move to Molineux yesterday morning, and is tasked with providing cover for the injured Raul Jimenez.
Nuno Espirito Santo has acted in the transfer market after relying on Fabio Silva for the past month or so, as well as the likes of Pedro Neto, Adama Traore and Daniel Podence at times.
Many felt the return of Patrick Cutrone would be the only striker incoming, but the experienced Willian Jose has now signed and many fans are delighted with the addition.
It is hoped he will be able to hit the ground running quickly, and that he can provide that physicality and link-up play that has been absent since Jimenez got injured.
And it seems Jose is already somewhat familiar with a couple of players at Molineux.
He told the club’s official website: “I already know them (Jonny and Nelson Semedo). They are two very good players. One was at Celta Vigo and the other at Barcelona, which for me is one of the best teams in the world. He’s a very good player. So, I’m happy with this opportunity I’m having, to wear this shirt and give my best.
“I’m happy because I won’t find it difficult to talk to my teammates – a lot of them are Portuguese, so we speak the same language. I just hope to adapt on the pitch as soon as possible and to give joy to the fans.”
Jose should settle well
Jose is primed to settle well and, hopefully, quickly at Molineux.
Being a Portuguese speakeris likely to help a lot given there are obviously many of those already at the club.
That he has already played against the likes of Jonny and Semedo could be good too as he may know a bit about how they operate.
