Wolves teenager Theo Corbeanu has admitted to Sky Sports he’s staying behind to do extra training.
He said he wants to work on beating players one against one, while teammate Hugo Beuno wants to improve his defending.
That means that the pair do extra sessions to work on that area. It’s clearly paying off as the Corbeanu made his debut against Tottenham last weekend.
He also said Nuno Espirito Santo is always on at him to improve his defensive work and agrees with the outgoing Old Gold boss that he needs to do better in that aspect of his game.
“Hugo wants to improve his game from the defensive end and I want to build my one-on-one skills into a super strength so we do a lot of one-on-one training.
“There are times when we go into the dome and stay after hours just to get some additional work in.”
“He is very helpful,” he said of Nuno. “”Every time that I train with the first team, he emphasises the point that I need to improve my defensive game.
“I could not agree more with that. It is definitely something that I am going to have to improve if I want to play at the highest level.”
Corbeanu’s attitude seems to be spot on and he’s been rewarded with a first team debut.
Perhaps there will be another appearance to come before the end of the season, against another of the country’s elite clubs, Manchester United.
The teenager must keep improving and will now have a new manager to impress when he returns for pre-season.
