Wolves getting to grips with Lage

26 July 2021 22:06:00 GMTPlus10

Wing-back Nelson Semedo says the squad is "getting good sensations" working under new Wolves manager Bruno Lage.

Wolves can be backed at 4/1 to win their 2020/21 Premier League season-opener at Leicester, who are priced at 7/10, while the draw on 14th August is available at 11/4.

After securing back-to-back seventh-placed finishes in the top-flight, the Molineux club lost their way last season and had to settle for 13th.

The absence of talisman Raul Jimenez likely played a big role in their struggles and new boss Lage, who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo over the summer, will be able to call on the Mexico ace when Wolves get the ball rolling at the King Power Stadium.

We are trying to get in his ideas and in his way of playing.

In preparation for that curtain-raiser at Leicester, the Midlands outfit have already embarked on their pre-season campaign.

They lost a friendly at Crewe before picking up their first win under Lage against Real Betis on Saturday, with Semedo laying on the assist for Patrick Cutrone.

Next up is Las Palmas on Monday before they return to English soil to face Stoke, Coventry and Celta Vigo over the next few weeks.

Semedo claims the squad is already getting to grips with Lage's philosophy and feels they can continue improving ahead of facing the Foxes.

"It's very important, because we have a new coach, we have Bruno, and we are trying to get in his ideas and in his way of playing, and we're training hard," said Semedo.

"It's always good to have a game to put into action what we are training.

"It was nice. I've been working with the team since Wednesday, getting good sensations, good feelings, trying to get in the ideas of the coach as well and it was a good game for us."
