Leander Dendoncker is Wolves’ unsung hero
The 24-year-old joined Wolves on a season-long loan deal in the 2018/19 summer transfer window.
The pack will be glad to hear that his move will become permanent this summer.
Dendoncker first donned the iconic gold and black in Wolves’ 2-1 win against Liverpool in the FA Cup.
Since then, the Belgium has been pivotal to Wolves’ success.
In 18 Premier League appearances, Dendoncker has only been a loser on 4 occasions (10 wins and 4 draws).
At 6 foot and 2 inches, he’s the cleaner in Wolves’ midfield starring Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho.
He’s only scored twice and provided zero assists, but his inclusion is vital to the team.
He easily outmuscled Fulham’s Aleksandr Mitrović yesterday in Wolves’ 1-0 win against Fulham.
Mitrović bullied Conor Coady in Fulham’s 3-0 win against Wolves in the Championship, but Dendoncker’s presence made this impossible for the Serbian striker.
This prevented Fulham from possessing any sort of threat.
And that’s why Dendoncker has been key to Wolves’ this season.
He stops Wolves’ midfield and Conor Coady from being easily bullied by strong opposition.
Next to Ryan Bennett and Willy Boly, Dendoncker gives Wolves the physicality in addition to the finesse.
