Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are curious to see which players will respond the best to Bruno Lage’s vastly different style to that of Nuno Espirito Santo.

From what we have seen so far, there is a good chance that several stars will be able to better express themselves.

One man who has quietly made a good start to the new season is Nelson Semedo.

It was a mixed bag for the 27-year-old in his first season.

He started off a little shaky, as he made the transition from back four at Barcelona to wing-back at Molineux.

In 2021 though he was largely pretty decent, and did improve defensively.

Semedo is the kind of full-back whose attacking game will probably always be his biggest strength.

And it seems that is already meshing well with Lage’s brand of football.

 

He’s played two of the three Premier League games so far, but Semedo has made nine crosses.

That is impressive going, and an assist will surely be on the cards before too long.

It has undoubtedly been an encouraging start from Semedo.

The team generally playing higher up the pitch has meant he’s been getting into some very dangerous positions.

And there have been times where he’s been the man over in lots of space and the ball hasn’t gone to him.

It looks like he has strong potential to become a key part of Lage’s side this term.
