Wolverhampton Wanderers Training Session


Wolves winger Goncalo Guedes made beeline for the tunnel against Brentford

Goncalo Guedes is reported to have made a beeline for the tunnel following Wolves’ 1-1 draw with Brentford.

The winger started the game on the bench once again, with interim manager Steve Davis preferring Daniel Podence and Adama Traore either side of Diego Costa in attack.

The 25-year-old has struggled for minutes in recent weeks as a result of poor form.

The last time he started for Wanderers was the game against Chelsea on October 8. He was substituted off at half-time at Stamford Bridge for Joe Hodge.

Guedes’ signing was highly anticipated by fans.

The club had reportedly chased him for some time, and there was real excitement when he finally joined for a reported £27.5 million back in August.

But so far, it has been a really underwhelming stint for Guedes, who has struggled to adapt to English football.

Fans have been growing impatient with the former Valencia ace, and journalist Liam Keen has now reported some information that won’t sit well with some people.

Speaking on the latest Express & Star podcast, he said: “I’ve had a colleague of mine who was in the away end tell me about it, I’ve had people tweet me about it as well. So I can only speak on what they saw.

“Apparently Goncalo Guedes, as soon as the whistle is blown, directs himself straight to the tunnel, is pulled back by a member of staff and he brushes them off and throws his hands in the air and walks off down the tunnel.

“I’m also told that Joao Moutinho was fairly quick behind him. How quick, I’m not exactly sure.”

Worrying claims about Goncalo Guedes, he must work to improve in all aspects at Wolves

This information from Keen is a worry.

Wanderers forked out a lot of money for Guedes, and spent a lot of time working to bring him to the club.

He’s had a tough start at Molineux, but fans could forgive him struggling to make the transition if they saw him working as hard as possible to turn things around.

Many are not getting that feeling at the moment, and behaviour like this will not endear him to anyone. It will only make his life more difficult.

He is a brilliant player, with great ball-carrying ability and a lethal shot. He could be absolutely great Wolves. But he has got to knuckle down and give Davis a reason to start starting him again.
