MGW injury is ‘very painful’ – Wolves boss

Wolves midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White is still ‘very painful’ with his back injury. The 19-year-old hasn’t played since October 24, when he came off in the 2-1 win away to Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League, but is still being troubled by discomfort with the problem. “He has a problem with his lower back and he’s still struggling with this,” said head coach Nuno Espirito Santo. “It’s very painful but he’s in the gym. First we have to take care of his pain, then we will be able to recover his shape. I hope he’s back soon.” The England Under-21 international…

Nuno is world class and we want him at Wolves for as long as possible – Coady

Conor Coady is convinced Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo is world class. Nuno has led Wolves to fifth in the Premier League and into the knockout stages of the Europa League despite playing four more games than any other Premier League team, after guiding them to seventh last season. The Portuguese was initially named as a bookies favourite to replace Unai Emery at Arsenal, and although there is no interest from the Gunners, the 45-year-old’s stock has never been higher. He turned down an approach from Arsenal towards the end of Arsene Wenger’s reign and rejected overtures from Everton…

Kennedy: Wolves’ Jordan Graham needs to ask himself tough questions

Mark Kennedy insists Wolves’ forgotten man Jordan Graham will be an asset for someone. But the caretaker Under-23s coach admits the 24-year-old winger needs to ask himself some tough questions before attempting to follow the path of others who have gone on to enjoy huge success after multiple loan spells, such as Harry Kane and Andros Townsend. Graham is out of contract at the end of the season and faces an uncertain future after falling sharply down the pecking order at Molineux under Nuno Espirito Santo. Kane, 26, had loan spells at Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester from 2011-13…

Sparky admits Wolves U21s’ defeat at Salford was case of ‘tough love’

Mark Kennedy admitted Wolves Under-21s’ 3-0 defeat at Salford City in the Leasing.com Trophy was a learning curve and a case of ‘tough love’. Wolves’ youngsters could have no complaints as they were well beaten by a strong League Two side to suffer their biggest defeat of the season. Ultimately, Kennedy’s side were undone by goals from Luke Armstrong in the two minutes either side of half-time after they failed to cut out crosses, before Richie Towell’s 87th minute volley underlined Salford’s superiority. Wolves, who featured 24-year-old Jordan Graham, didn’t lay a glove on Graham Alexander’s side, although Chem Campbell…

Cutrone – why I broke down after scoring for Wolves

Tearful Patrick Cutrone revealed why he broke down after scoring for Wolves in the 2-0 win against West Ham. The 21-year-old striker’s emotions got the better of him as he celebrated in front of the South Bank after converting the second goal following Pedro Neto’s touch from Jonny Castro Otto’s cross. The strike from Cutrone – who recently admitted he has been watching videos of club record scorer Steve Bull –  came four minutes from time and just six minutes after coming on. Cutrone has only played 38 minutes of football since the start of November, while it was only…

Nuno rewards Wolves for Hammers win – with first day off in three weeks

Nuno Espirito Santo has given Wolves’ squad their first day off in three weeks after the 2-0 win against West Ham. Wolves players have faced a gruelling season – the Hammers game was their 28th of the campaign, four more than any other team in the Premier League. This was their third game in seven days and they face eight matches in 29 days in December, including two with 45 hours’ between them after Christmas – Manchester City at home then Liverpool away. But first they are having a rest day before returning to prepare for Sunday’s trip to Brighton.…

Cutrone in tears after Hammer-ing home Wolves’ supremacy – report

Wolves 2 (Dendoncker 23, Cutrone 86) West Ham United 0. Patrick Cutrone broke down in tears after scoring as Wolves extended their unbeaten run into double figures with a well-deserved 2-0 win over West Ham to go fifth in the Premier League. Goals from Leander Dendoncker and substitute Cutrone, who has only played 38 minutes’ football since the start of November, stretched the sequence without loss to 10 games in the Premier League, the club’s longest in the top flight since January 1972, and 13 including Europa League ties. Two goals barely did justice to Wolves’ superiority on a night…
