Mendes can help turn Wolves into a top-six force – Ndah

Jorge Mendes’s influence can attract world class players and push Wolves into the Premier League’s top six. That’s the opinion of popular former Wolves striker George Ndah. With the help of the Portuguese super-agent, Wolves have signed Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho, Diogo Jota, Rui Patricio and Willy Boly among others to transform from a mid-ranking Championship club to seventh in the Premier League and FA Cup semi-finalists inside two years. Neves swapped the Champions League with Porto for the Championship with Wolves in a then club record £15.8m move but the gamble worked out. At £5m, the signing of Moutinho…

Conor Coady has urged Wolves to ‘do it right’ in the FA Cup semi-final after his previous experience at the same stage of the competition.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side now face Watford at Wembley on Sunday, April 7 at 4pm for a place in the final, and will have 33,000 gold and black devotees roaring them on. The teams will know the opponents in the final as the other semi between Manchester City and…

Matt Doherty set for forward role

Matt Doherty could be set for a more forward role with Ireland under his old Wolves manager, Mick McCarthy. The long-serving Molineux stalwart has impressed hugely at right wing back this season and McCarthy, who is preparing for his first games since returning to the Irish hotseat, recently said Doherty was the best in that position in the Premier League. Doherty, 27, has struggled for games at international level because previous boss Martin O’Neill preferred Seamus Coleman at right back and the Everton man is also the captain, while he also picked Cyrus Christie ahead of the Wolves defender.
