Last night, Matheus Nunes posted a very long and cryptic message about his exit from Wolves.

The midfielder left the club on transfer deadline day to join Manchester City in a £53 million deal.

In a seperate move, Wolves landed Tommy Doyle on loan from City.

Nunes’ move came about after he went on strike from last Sunday.

The player did not train with Wolves in a bid to force through a move to City.

In the end, the player got his wish and Nunes has been slammed by many for his behaviour.

But now, the player has issued a lengthy statement about his exit from Molineux and the reasons for it…

Matheus Nunes breaks silence on Wolves exit with lengthy statement

Nunes, who was on the bench for City against Fulham yesterday, decided to break his silence about his move last night on Instagram.

And it is a very interesting statement from the 25-year-old.

He appears to suggest that there has been more to the story of his exit.

He writes: “The time has come to say goodbye to the club that allowed me to play in the best League in the world and to the club for whom I have always had deep admiration and respect. Thanks to Wolves, the staff, my teammates and especially the extraordinary fans, for their unwavering and heart-warming enthusiasm and support.

“I really appreciate the meaning of the word commitment and that was what was always present in my daily attitudes over a year that will remain in my memory forever. I could have a lot to say about the real reason for my departure and how it happened, but I will only say that the fans deserve all my respect, affection and deep admiration. Everything happens for a reason, however incomprehensible it may seem at first sight, but the future, I am sure, will clarify it and probably, at that time, everyone without exception will understand the reason for this last troubled week. Thank you Wolves fans, I will never forget you.”

Nunes statement is very interesting

This statement from Nunes is very intriguing – and it will probably not go down well with most Wolves fans.

He is suggesting that there is more to the story. If that is the case, then why does he not just say what’s happened?

There has been some speculation that Wolves might have had some kind of gentleman’s agreement with Nunes about potential interest in him from a big club.

Perhaps if a Champions League club came calling, Wolves were supposed to help him facilitate a move.

It was suggested shortly after Nunes joined Wolves that he would only actually stay for one season.

Maybe he felt Wolves were going to go back on that.

But it was still incredibly unprofessional behaviour from Nunes in the end. And he will undoubtedly get a rough reception when he comes back to Molineux with City.
