Moutinho happy being Wolves 'prankster'

Joao Moutinho is enjoying his life at Wolves.

The midfielder admits he's happy being the squad's joker.

"I joke every day, pranks, sometimes," he told the Daily Mail.

"I try to be happy and to give a smile.' Bought by Wolves to add rarefied quality, the 32-year-old knows what it takes to reach the top but does not take himself too seriously.

On his first day of training he forgot to tie his laces yet carried on regardless "to make the group laugh" and there are other "small things" too.

"In the shower we have the hot water, so I turn the cold on and all the players need to run," he says.
