With a raft of signing from Portugal making their way over to Wolves this summer, Portuguese Football Writer Jan Hogen gives us the lowdown on what to expect from these latest imports.
Thanks to the help of super-agent Jorge Mendes, deeply connected with their Chinese owners Fosun, Wolves have turned into “Little Portugal” over the summer.
In total, Wolves have captured the signings of one Portuguese manager, a new in-house coaching staff, six Portuguese players and another two players who’ve previously played in Portugal.
That’s in addition to Hélder Costa and Ivan Cavaleiro who joined last year.
”Wolvugal’s” Portuguese community could have been even bigger, but the likes of Sílvio, Ola John and João Teixeira failed to extend their stay in the West Midlands after arriving last summer.
We won’t discuss the involvement of Jorge Mendes at Wolves here, although it’s both massive and highly interesting.
In this article, we will look at the quality and characteristics of Wolves’ new Portuguese constellation.
